The Conversation, 1.16.18

Essay by John Dyck, Ph.D. student in philosophy at the Graduate Center, CUNY. Dyck discusses the pros and cons of bad art versus good art that morphs into the paradigm of “it’s so bad, it’s good.” Dyck cites his new paper about the topic in The Journal of Value Inquiry entitled “Appreciating Bad Art.”
