If that's not art, then what is?If that's art, then what isn't?
Since it first appeared in 1917, this bog has become probably the world's most famous piece of porcelain. It's unclear whether Duchamp ever used it for its actual purpose before sticking it in a gallery.
That's art.That's not art.
Piero Manzoni produced ninety cans of his own crap in 1961 to highlight the 'critical and metaphorical reification of the artist's body, its processes and products, pointed the way towards an understanding of the persona of the artist and the product of the artist's body as a consumable object'. We bet you knew that too.
Definitely art.Definitely not art.
It's not art.
Warhol did love consumer product packaging, but sadly it was yes to Brillo pads, no to maxi pads.

Nah, it's not.
The English artist certainly does love a bit of neon, but the real work 'I don’t believe in love but I believe in you' is pictured on the right.
Um... yes?Eh... no.
It is a work of art...
... and one of the most controversial ones at that. It was destroyed in 2011 by Catholics with hammers - though it's worth noting that the artist had Christian intentions when creating it. "The thing about the crucifix itself is that we treat it almost like a fashion accessory. When you see it, you're not horrified by it at all, but what it represents is the crucifixion of a man."

It's a fake!
This replica of Alexandros of Antioch's world-famous sculpture is made from panda dung. But just because it's not the original, doesn't mean it's worthless: Chinese sculptor Zhu Cheng's homage fetched £30,000 when it went on sale in 2010.
Both art, and crap
McCarthy's massive inflatable turd has a bad record of causing havoc wherever it goes. Strong winds have resulted in it smashing windows, breaking power lines and landing in the yard of a children's home. The lesson? Keep your sh!t indoors.
