The steps to a fantastic day

- Eat a meal entirely composed of kimchi: kimchi jjigae, kimchijeon and plain old kimchi.

- Find a ridiculous phone case. Make your phone wear it.

- Browse some free galleries. Befriend the artists, swap URLs and collect the post cards.

- Drink an elegant latte out of a toilet bowl.

- Find 1000원 socks. Buy 10.

- Eat an expensive Italian dinner, the best a wallet can buy. Something fancy that’s hard to pronounce.

- Walk around slowly as you carefully finish off a cup of gelato for dessert.

- Hop into a cafe and have a chat with the old men at the bar. Say “yes” when they offer to treat your coffee.

- Come home and take a nice, hot shower with some good TV on in the background. Something comfortable that you’ve already seen but never get tired of.

“I don’t mistrust reality, of which I know next to nothing. I mistrust the picture of reality conveyed to us by our senses, which is imperfect and circumscribed.“

Happy birthday, Gerhard Richter! Richter works in many mediums including #painting, #photography, and #sculpture. This self-portrait looks like a blurred photograph, but is actually an oil painting. View other works of Richter’s from the MoMA’s collection at mo.ma/gerhardrichter.

Richard Hamilton was born on this day in 1922.

A pioneer of Pop Art, the British artist used collage to critique consumer culture and mass media. A prime example of this is Interior, which incorporates advertisements from mass-circulation magazines.
