This is a question Pretentious bollocks

Possibly the worst event I ever went to was an evening of turntablists in London. The lights went down, the first guy put a cymbal onto a turntable, dropped the needle on it and left it making screeching noises for ten minutes.

When the lights came up, half the audience had snuck out.

What's the most pretentious rubbish you've ever been to see in the name of art?

I have a high threshold-
went to v. pretentious London architecture school, recent Tarkovsky season at NFT made me wee myself with happiness and I quite like Joseph Beuys. Or his artwork at least

Unfortunately I did once see a production, nay British Premiere, of a completely opaque and screechy Japanese avant-garde opera based on King Lear, which was THE most dire thing ever. Sets were really good though...*

okay, I designed them...
