What I like most about this reality / talent show is that the audience comes to see the point of view of the artist of their own and other's works. Even when the piece of art is a failure in my opinion or in the judges' opinion, I can always see that there was an original concept behind that piece of work. The artists try to come out with good ideas, but sometimes the work gets diluted, or it escalates out of hand, or its realization is not eventually as good as it sounded beforehand.
I also think there was much more variety of skills in the first season. By including performance art of several types, the programme spread the word about several artists whose art didn't usually show up in museum exhibitions. I can remember that there was even an architect.
This programme has made art coming from young or not so young up-and- coming artists available to a wider section of the public. I live in a very small town without big museums nearby, and a huge lack of cultural life, and the programme has succeeded in making available several present-day art movements and artists which I would have never heard of otherwise.
