Kitsch is Art

Everything is tacky, if you will. Music as a whole is kitsch, kitsch is art, literature itself is tacky. Every emotion is kitschy, almost by definition, but also any reflection, and even, in a sense, action. The only thing that is absolutely not kitsch, is nothingness.

Michel Houellebecq, The Possibility of an Island
