At Art-Fairs like “Art Basel”, you encoun­ter quite a few gol­den images in gol­den frames. If you belie­ve in (the ent­i­re­ly fic­tio­n­al “real” value of) gold, you don’t belie­ve in art. If you belie­ve in gold as “art”, you still don’t belie­ve in art. Here’s a ver­si­on of a gol­den image in a gol­den frame tha­t’s equal­ly cheap and non­sen­si­cal, but a bit more honest/literal/“conceptual” & the­re­fo­re at least some­what, mini­mal­ly, art-like.

[Bonus-Game: Find all the “impu­ri­ties” wit­hin the “gold”!]
