Given two indiscernible objects

“Given two indiscernible objects, one art and the other not, what accounts for the difference? …My view, in any case, was that once the question arose, anything could be an artwork, and that, in consequence, the history of art, construed as the quest for self-consciousness, had reached its end…What does it mean to live in a world in which anything could be a work of art?”
