This article needs a major overhaul. It's basically an essay. It needs sources that clearly discuss the topic rather than sources that support the primary author's ideas. There's a difference and we need to maintain that. freshacconci talktalk 16:58, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

This page is what the above author claims "an essay". I recommend removal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kitschpainter (talkcontribs) 17:01, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

If you would prefer the article to be deleted you can nominate it for deletion (see WP:AFD). It's usually preferable to clean up an article rather than deleting it but if you feel there are no third-party sources to establish this as a notable art movement, AFD is the way to go. freshacconci talktalk 17:41, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your help. Kitsch is not Art (see Broch, Adorno, Greenberg, et. al.). Consequently, "the kitsch movement" cannot be properly defined as an art movement much less a notable one. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kitschpainter (talkcontribs) 18:58, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

I would also add as a response to freshacconci comment on his "talk" page; "Artist" is not a neutral term. However, the term "artist" is not an issue due to this topic does not concern art i.e. what an artist makes but kitsch.Kitschpainter (talk) 19:43, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Clean ups text checks[edit]

I've started a clean up on this article and hope to link it to the Odd Nerdrum article. I am traveling with out access to sources so can't check the text, but some sounds oddly familiars and I am wondering about plagiarized text. I won;t get back to this for almost three weeks but I will take a look then.(Littleolive oil (talk) 15:37, 24 September 2016 (UTC))
