Modern Art=religion

a: Modern art ~
b: religion

What: "Donner has turned against modernism, railing against the "easy victories" of the avant garde, and arguing that modern art is like religion, "only sustained by faith", a sham in which everyone is complicit. Again this all reflects back on the theme of blindness: whether, when looking at art, we all fill in the imaginative gaps, as Sophie does."
