Art and the Context of Society Art and the Context of Society Presentation Transcript

  • Living in a certain place and time,
  • we tend to think
  • within a certain set of values
  • and act upon them
  • as if they are universal.
  • And we use our critical skills
  • to judge 'everything'.
  • It is a set of values
  • that is the sum
  • of the whole society,
  • and living by its rules
  • is more or less
  • part of the game.
  • The game of a society
  • that keeps a certain balance
  • between individual desire
  • and the common good.
  • But that does not mean
  • those values are universal.
  • That they apply everywhere.
  • And in all times.
  • That just means
  • they are good
  • in a certain context.
  • The context of that specific society.
  • In that specific time in history.
  • Art is also criticized
  • in the spirit of that age.
  • But one of the characteristics of art is,
  • that it is a search for new patterns
  • that fit in a greater whole,
  • which go beyond the context
  • of that specific society
  • in that specific time.
