Elephant dung with your art, sir?

If you've given up visiting art galleries because elephant dung, animals pickled in formaldehyde and Colin McCahon just aren't your thing, then you might have wondered how they could ever have become anyone's thing?

Stephen Hicks explains here how today's 'post-modern art' came to be so ugly. (And if you like what he's got here, keep your eye out for his next book - after slaying the Postmodernist dragon, for his next job he'll be be moving in on postmodernist art.)

He concludes: "The world of postmodern art is a run-down hall of mirrors reflecting tiredly some innovations introduced a century ago. It is time to move on."
