More Classical Art Memes For The Cultured Souls

Classical Art Memes is basically the only way to get your dose of culture, art, and history. Oh, and laughs. Because let's face it, no one wants to remember what we're living through now, so we might as well go back in time and look at how bad it was back then. And is there a better way to do that than through memes? We don't think so either. Scroll through and educate yourselves!

'Very British Problems' Making Life Awkward For Brits Everywhere

I am British and I know that my fellow Brits and I have a special way of making everything awkward. I know, that statement sounds like I'm in some sort of 'Brits Anonymous' meeting, but I think it's important to acknowledge and embrace who we are at the core of our culture. Is it ridiculous that we insist on being so polite all the time? Yes. but would I change anything about it? No, because when you start pointing out the situations we put ourselves in every day, they are pretty hilarious. Twitter page Very British Problems articulates all the awkward nuances of what it means to be "so very British", and they're brilliantly accurate. So get comfy, make yourself a cup of good old British tea, and have a laugh at our expense.

Tumblr Users Share What Recipes Are Like In Different Cultures

In America, we sprinkle bacon everywhere. Even in places you're not expecting, such as chapstick. Seriously? Why does that exist? And we also sprinkle bacon in places one should never sprinkle bacon. 

Use your imagination, we will not elaborate. 

What are recipes like in your culture? Share them with us in the comments below.

When Artists Use Sex Dolls To Explore The Place Of Women In Our Culture

With her book Play with Me: Dolls, Women and Art, journalist Grace Banks has decided to document how artists use these sex dolls to explore the place of women in our culture. Between objectification, gender and caricature of the female body, these dolls for adults trigger a real ethical and political debate, which contemporary artists seek to dissect. In her book, Grace Banks gathers the work and interviews of 40 artists, centered on the use of these dolls but also on the representation of women in the visual culture. Via: Ufunk

Pink for girls, blue for boys. A girl must be pretty, a boy must be strong. Pink and Blue is a powerful short film that illustrates the cultural differences between girls and boys, the image they have to represent and how to educate them. An awesome video directed by Jake Dypka and Hollie McNish.
