From the outside, the art world might look like an easy way to cash in. But behind the billion-dollar profits lurks a sketchy industry of secret money, shady collectors, and looted artifacts, all with a reputation that falls short of picture perfect. Everyone literally knows the Art World is just money laundering for the elites.
That’s how they launder trillions of dollars every year. You get a tax cut or totally avoid paying taxes if you donate arts to museums that’s why these criminals buy arts worth billions of dollars worth of arts, donate them and never pay taxes in their lives.
Art is trash, co opted by elite aristocrats almost through its whole history outside the cave, and total bullshit. Art is also the most important thing any human can ever create.
