Why you should listen
Comedian and cabaret artist Ursus Wehrli is the author of Tidying Up Art, a visionary manifesto that yearns toward a more rational, more organized and cleaner form of modern art. In deconstructing the work of Paul Klee, Jaspen Johns and other masters into its component parts, organized by color and size, Wehrli posits a more perfect art world.
His book The Art of Clean Up extends this principle into the physical world, with extremely (though oddly) satisfying results. Click through to see what a bowl of alphabet soup would look like in Wehrli's world.
