Transcript

  • 1. Living in a certain place and time,
  • 2. we tend to think
  • 3. within a certain set of values
  • 4. and act upon them
  • 5. as if they are universal.
  • 6. And we use our critical skills
  • 7. to judge 'everything'.
  • 8. It is a set of values
  • 9. that is the sum
  • 10. of the whole society,
  • 11. and living by its rules
  • 12. is more or less
  • 13. part of the game.
  • 14. The game of a society
  • 15. that keeps a certain balance
  • 16. between individual desire
  • 17. and the common good.
  • 18. But that does not mean
  • 19. those values are universal.
  • 20. That they apply everywhere.
  • 21. And in all times.
  • 22. That just means
  • 23. they are good
  • 24. in a certain context.
  • 25. The context of that specific society.
  • 26. In that specific time in history.
  • 27. Art is also criticized
  • 28. in the spirit of that age.
  • 29. But one of the characteristics of art is,
  • 30. that it is a search for new patterns
  • 31. that fit in a greater whole,
  • 32. which go beyond the context
  • 33. of that specific society
  • 34. in that specific time.
