Are LOLCats and Internet Memes Art?

Mike Rugnetta ponders the question “Are LOLCats and Internet Memes Art?” over on the PBS Idea Channel.

We’ve all seen and shared a few LOLCats and Internet Memes in our time, but is it possible that these images and videos are actually a new form of art? It may seem strange, but Rage Guys, Advice Dogs, Trollfaces, and Philosoraptors are ways for people around the globe to express their thoughts, feelings, and emotions with others; the core principle of art. And we think some of history’s greatest philosophers and artists might be inclined to agree!
