These six pictures were taken during my visit to Harvard Art Museums to see the Bauhaus exhibit. As usual, I tried to capture the interaction and non-interaction of the visitors with the work of art in the display. Knowing the background of some people in the picture, I think, I can distinguish between looks of two kinds of visitors: the casual passers-by and a serious visual artist. And there is also the indifference of those “kids” who cannot take their eyes from the screens of their phones.

One more thing: the prank in the last frame. Does it point to the difficulty of distinguishing between modern art and non-art? Was Arthur Danto right in declaring the end of art? 

It is handy to use FUJIFILM X100T for picture taking in a museum or in the streets for that matter: nobody seems to mind a tourist using a "vintage camera" of his grandfather. In addition to cropping the pictures to my preferred aspect ratios, I had to adjust the white balance, I believe, in all cases using the wall as the basis. 

You can see these pictures in the following albums - FLICKR album also contains my comments on individual pictures:
