While I attended art school

there was a retrospective celebrating the role the College played in the heyday of 70's conceptual art. One of the pieces consisted of a single hole in the wall, the result of someone firing a pellet gun. Whatever, I didn't like it either. What fascinated me was that not only had someone bought the "original" (did they buy the whole wall or just like a square foot?), but they had also "authorized" the "reproduction" of the nonobject-cum-artobject!
