a Danish museum lent a bunch of money to an artist working on an art installation called "Take the money and run", supposedly made to show the difference between a yearly wage in Austria compared to Denmark

when they got the frames, they were empty

the artist took the money, and ran

this, the artist has stated in interviews, is the art piece

I love it

@ChlorideCull fun fact: an artist friend of mine likes to relate how one of their art professors straight up told the classroom that if their art wasn't selling, they needed to add some zeros to the price tag to attract rich people.

@ChlorideCull this is really the best way to interact with museum art, i love it
