The Summa Kitschica

by Ain't Thomas Aquinas

Part One

Question 1

The Nature and Domain of Kitsch

(In Ten Articles)

To place our purpose within definite limits, we must first investigate the nature and domain of kitsch. Concerning this there are ten points of inquiry:--

(1) Whether kitsch is necessary? (2) Whether it is art? (3) Whether kitsch should be taught? (4) Whether it is material or spiritual? (5) How it is compared with other arts? (6) Whether it is addictive? (7) Whether real life is its subject-matter? (8) Whether it is culturally significant? (9) Whether it rightly employs metaphors and similes? (10) Whether there is a Sacred Scripture of kitsch?
