Contemporary Music


Today, you will not hear the music you are used to. We are going to play kitsch! At least, you are going to hear music that was once called that. What exactly is kitsch? Kitsch is culture with false artistic pretensions. Someone wants to make art, but does so with too many cheap associations, which does not make the other person think enough. It is a matter of interpretation, therefore, on which people differ considerably.
