The first and last real conceptual art work, Duchamp's urinal.

The first and only really original conceptual artwork was Duchamp's urinal. A "found object" as art.


The next imaginative leap should have been: "The whole universe is a found object, we can appreciate that, we don't need to create other conceptual art. Nothing can beat the universe."

But that thought would not feed the art market nor the ego of the artists. So was born the idiocy of conceptual art, poor in concepts, rich in wool to pull over eyes.

The upside is that many people art create ignoring the art market. John Craxton for example. And maybe you. Do it. Create it. Fuck'em all.
