Art Dirt: The Border Wall Doesn’t Make Donald Trump A Conceptual Artist

Eight prototypes for a wall have been installed along the San Diego-Tijuana border.

In our latest Art Dirt podcast, Rainey Knudson and Christina Rees discuss artist Christoph Büchel’s proposal to designate the prototypes for a wall between the US and Mexico as a national monument, and whether any of this is art.

“You have to imagine that the graffiti artists are just salivating over this thing.”
