why kitch is easy

"When art makes itself kitch, it panders to the disorder that reigns in the 'taste' of the pateron. Together, artist, gallery owner, critic, and public indulge one another in the Anything Goes-it's time to relax. But this realism of Anythinggoes is the realism of money.................. as for taste, there is no need to be choosy when you are speculationg or amusing yourself."

-Jean-Francois Lyotard in "The Post Modern Explained"
