A simple Google search would tell you the definition of Kitsch, “kitsch originated in the art markets of Munich in the 1860s and the 1870s, describing cheap, popular, and marketable pictures and sketches”
Yes this is in Munich, and Munich is in Germany, and Germany is in Europe, but this is Beirut, and in Beirut cheap gets expensive, due to shipping fees.
What is Labeled Kitsch in Beirut, is subliminally labeled as “do not touch” it is too expensive for you.
What is defined to be POP art in Beirut is suggesting ” It is only for cool Bourgeois People who decided to act like rebels and not wear the corset”.
What goes under Hipster in Beirut means ” an espresso is good for me , this is all i can afford”.
