Serge, Marc and Yvan have been friends for fifteen years. Serge occasionally likes to splash out on modern art. Marc doesn’t. Yvan doesn’t feel strongly either way. Serge buys an all-white painting for 60,000 euros. Marc thinks this is absurd and makes his feelings known.  Caught in the middle, Yvan tries to patch things up but actually makes them worse. The question is: will the friendship survive?

Yasmina Reza (°1959) is a French writer and actor.  Her father was a Jewish-Iranian engineer of Russian descent, her mother a Jewish-Hungarian violinist. ‘Art’, Reza’s most famous play, was premièred in Paris on October 28th 1994 and the next year it won the ‘Molière’ for best playwright and best show in an independent theatre. It has since been translated into thirty-five languages.

‘Art’ is of course first and foremost a brilliant tragicomedy, but the increasingly cynical neoliberal discourse about the relevance of art and culture make it punishingly topical once more.

When is art art? 
How much should it cost? 
Should a country spend money on art? 
Should your hobby be subsidized?
