Kitsch should speak the most common language understandable to all. It shouldn’t venture into esoteric jargons (like cubism) or idiosyncratic dialects (as in Jackson Pollock’s biomorphic period). Kitsch artists never have to explain how their pictures should be looked at, what categories and concepts are relevant for their comprehension. Kitsch cannot afford to be, and hence never is, confusing.

While I think kitsch should speak to all of you, maybe some think, kitsch shouldn’t speak at all?!?
What do you think?
Thanks for flying with be kitschig. Have a great start to your week!

It’s best to be kitsch. 🤍 Have a great Monday.
Oh thanks hun! x
Kitsch speaks for itself. Some just don’t understand its language. 🙂
Yes, yes! Maybe they will come around eventually 😉
That’s the language of brotherly love.
well now, there’s an idea: Kitsch shouldn’t speak at all!!!! YEP It.Just.Is….
Thought of you when we drove through Zweisimmen on Saturday, on our way to a micro break. Passed along that truly terrible, overstuffed, Kitsch-as-kitsch-can garden. It didn’t look better with the dirty snow patches amongst them…. 😉
Love, as always!!!
Ha ha, oh you …
Du Arme. Zum Glück hast du das gut überstanden! Bei anderen hätte ich mir ein Foto gewünscht! Hoffentlich hattest du keine schlechten Träume danach … x
ich hab schnell die Augen zugedrückt !!!!! 😉
Ei … zum Glück!
Long live kitsch! Maybe it can speak for itself best as it is viewed, but if it needs to be defined in terms of a language then the Kulka quote is spot on 🙂
He wrote a big book on it. Thank goodness, otherwise I might run out of quotes some day 😅
I loved the gnome post they are so very cute, it looks like a fun park to go to!
It was amazing! While it’s a small place, you can pretty much spend all day there 😅
I love places like this! I love tiny villages too, I heard there are many in Germany. Have put this place on my list of places I want to go in Germany. Here is a video I made of a tiny village in Wrocław Poland https://youtu.be/XJWgMk4dmQg
Some villages in Germany look like time froze. Check out the ones that didn’t get destroyed too much during the war. Here’s a random link from the internet for you, prettiest German towns & villages
I really want to go there. I’ve put it on my list of places to visit. Here’s a video I made of a tiny village in Wrocław Here is a video I made of a tiny village in Wrocław Poland https://youtu.be/XJWgMk4dmQg
Oh wow, that place looks amazing! So much detail.
Sometimes kitsch is a very nice way of be modern and vintage at the same time; to be You:)
That is a very nice way of looking at that!
