Modern "Art"

In a recent exhibit at the Tate Modern museum of London,
Colombian artist Doris Salcedo created a long crack in the hallway’s floor.
It's a work she calls "Shibboleth."
The Tate explains in museum literature that the crack highlights the world’s [by which she means "Europe's"] legacy of racism and exclusion.
Ah, racism and exclusion. Call me old-fashioned, but how is a 550-foot long crack on a museum floor "art"?

This is almost farcical.
