Art criticism fired!

The concept is inspired by cooking and music programs on television. We have arranged two evenings with this concept and experience that the audience finds this both educational and entertaining.

The taste panel selects 10 works from art history that will be a blind test for the others in the panel according to a pattern from cake and chef programs on TV. They are therefore challenged to give an immediate and spontaneous Art Criticism on the kick! They have not had the opportunity to prepare for the encounter with the art the others have picked out. How do they rate the same artwork? What is subjective or objective? What knowledge do you need? What determines whether we think something is good or bad art?
