Post Modern art

This is most likely an extension of this
From the title I think most of you know how this will go

Are you fond for modern art? (If so, who are your favorite artists?)
Do you think that we'd be better off if a more "classical" stile was to return as mainstream?
Do you disregard modern art as "not art at all"?
The role of darkness is not to be seen as, or equated with, Ignorance, but with the unknown, and the mysteries of the unseen.

Well, to start, what is your opinion?

My favourite movement in modern art : The Bauhaus
which wasn't 'anti-art' but resisted the establishment of Fine Art and tried to reunite Craft and Art.

the manifesto:
"Architects, sculptors, painters, we must all turn to the crafts....There is no essential difference between the artist and the craftsman. The artist is an exalted craftsman. In rare moments of inspiration, moments beyond the control of his will, the grace of heaven may cause his work to blossom into art. But proficiency in his craft is essential to every artist. Therein lies a source of creative imagination. Let us create a new guild of craftsman and artist....''

Something of the revolutionary spirit about it.
"The economic anarchy of capitalist society as it exists today is, in my opinion, the real source of the evil...there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy." Albert Einstein
