So I think we are all aware that capitalism poisons art at all points. Any genuine sort of media property will be milked for all it's worth and then milked somehow even more. But here's the thing: I do think that multiple sequels and even reboots/remakes can be art. I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with having a series go for a long period, because sometimes you do want to know what happened to the characters

>says something.

Any movie says something even if the director don't intend to.
It might be very consensual or subversive, but in the end it still says something.

You can take a liquidy shit on a piece of paper and that's art. The most derivative, tired, and profit seeking film that you can think of is still art. The question is, what makes art good? What makes it worthwhile? And be careful! Even really bad art can be worthwhile, for example, if it's bad art made in the service of eventually making good art.

Battlestar Galactica the reboot is considered one of the best sci fi franchise ever, the original was shit. The Stargate series was waaaaay better then the movie. And so on and so on.

duchamp was a prodigy impressionist who mastered all kinds of forms of painting in his life, fountain was a "piece" he submitted to an art show that accepted anything as long as the artists paid a fee, but they refused to put it on display. its not entirely a joke as he did do other static art of mundane objects, but they can in general be interpreted as a critique of art as a bourgeois club as opposed to a self evident craft

Maybe it’s just because I’m not fully engrossed in Westoid “entertainment” but the comparison between Ultraboy and the Queer Brigade vs Dinomaster 15 in 3D and something like the works of Tchaikovsky is like comparing a pile of horse dung with a golden statue.

Does it uplift the spirit, inspire the masses or at the very least carry some important moral or ideological message? If the answer is no to all of the above then what you’re dealing with isn’t art.

To speak of "uplifting the spirit" and carrying important moral features isnt a typical "materialist" discourse. Especially when before you create an abridgement between tchaikovsky and hollywood to give a sense of the "objective" value in art.
Basically, youre being undialectical by rooting art in essential forms.

 No.1758670

Also the dadaism movement just showed up after ww1 with the intent to show "what art would look like if humanity was reduced to caveman shit and still using sticks and stones", people at that time thought europe was gonna get reduced to ash when the war happened and dada art was used to represent that feeling, all it takes is just to open a history book to find out about that, but ppl here are complaining that this art has no meaning and comparing to a piece of shit in a carpet.

 No.1758673

>>1758669
You could only reach that conclusion if you believed in absolute relativity, which again contradicts dialectics. And as “spirit” is the driving force behind humanity and what separates us from animals, it is what gives us the ability to understand materialism and our place in reality. To deny this existence is to claim humans just function automatically by chance, which again is peak idealism

Dada wasn't the only thing that was produced after WW1, it was only one of the dozen other art movements at the time, you could find other pieces of art that wasn't minimalistic ironic shit, and idk why you comparing to the soviet art when the point of the soviet art was to show the liberation after the revolution and their triumph after surviving ww1, the point of dada was to show the fear of people of europe getting into the stone age after the war was happening.
