Rather than being personal, I believe modern art is political. It aims to express ideas, perhaps personal, sometimes antagonistic, that challenge perceptions and question norms. The aim is to question conservative rhetoric and find new realms that offer fresh insight.
Marcel Duchamp certainly did this very well, he gets us thinking about so many aspects of creativity: are we appreciating a genius master (with a joke name) at work, or the skilled ceramic workers and business owners who created the urinal? Is the urinal a sacred piece of work to protect and hang on the wall of a gallery, or is it there for visitors to use if they need a pee? The joke is as much on the art establishment as it is the viewer.

Art at its best.
