But is it really a masterful piece of art?
Sure, it's clever, it makes a statement, but after you grasp the point being made, will it live with you and resonate? So much art is made by artists who have clever and witty ways of making statements about societies, but I've often found they don't make a lasting impression because they don't show how the human mind works. Often, there are more things to learn from an abstract painting than a political art statement, because an abstract painting is like a mandala, opening up new perceptions, new ways of seeing, while political statements always imply just one way of seeing -- and blanche at others. For example, that stupid book could also be seen disrupting the perfectly serene harmony of a lovely garden wall. In that context, I would pry the book out; I don't need no stinking lessons, in my lovely garden.
