Cockroaches took over art and the world applauded

This appeared a few days ago but it is a routine item-

Silly, pretentious and not even trying to fake a flicker of intelligence or talent.Transparently con.Why do we take it for granted that this is what 'great' artists do? Why don't we hold them up to some standards? When did the great men die off and the cockroaches took over?

I shall comment on it later. Rushed now.
