Brancusi vs USA

Listen to this R3 docu-drama and decide yourself whether art is futile, or utile.

US customs threatened a 40% tax on an import of a Brancusi bronze "L'Oiseau", which leaning to ultimate abstraction, was not believed to be a Bird, and therefore could be a mystery utensil, and thereby taxable.

I'll see you in court!
