Kitsch – “A second hand experience”

article

Kitsch is art or other objects that, generally speaking, appeal to popular rather than “high art” tastes, something that appeals to popular or lowbrow taste and is often of poor quality.

The word Kitsch has first appeared In Munich, in second half of 19th century and was used in street markets for different kinds of souvenirs – quick sketches, postcards, small painted sculptures. Later the term became popular all over the Europe and included photos (especially erotic), posters, advertisement, comics and even Art of the Salon and Hollywood movies.
