El Lissitzky

This week we talked about art as an agency for change both preceding and during modern revolutions. Do you think that art has a responsibility to be of use in the way that the Bolsheviks did? Can you think of any examples of contemporary works that seriously challenge either the sociopolitical status quo or the role of art in society?

  1. i have come to see art as an entity upon no expectation, responsibility, or rules can be placed upon it as an ideal, it now exists beyond the idea of boundries or the idea that art has to fufill any role at all in society
