Kitsch and Anti-Kitsch

This article is an excellent, dense, but clear piece of writing. Highly recommended.

Just one quote: "... we have to ask why there is no kitsch in the Christian Scriptures. It is not that the texts are shy of emotion: to the contrary. But throughout there is an insistence on seeing reality, seeing it steadily and seeing it whole. Kitsch ducks this insistence."
