Art misread as poverty, poverty misread as art; 
Art is realism, surrealism and postmodern but never real.
New Orientalism practiced, while cameras shows pictures of "poverty" Outsourcing the out sourced, diminishing its reality in reconstructing it, reinventing it, giving it a new shape. Is it really art that expresses reality or does it rather cater to my  lie?

Exhibiting the suppressed on clean white wall while clean withe face might feel an absurd sense of pity, maybe a glorification of the suppressed, while the suppressed becomes a hero as the pitied and not as the liberated. The act of buying mimes the act of liberation.
