Art and Politics
Art and Politics have gone fade in hand since the first spelunk paintings had been drawn on cave walls. As the cavemen may have found out through new(prenominal) fellow cave wall trickists as well as their individual audiences, art is not just restricted to those who fancy themselves as artists. The point that artwork regardless of intent and purpose may be viewed in various manner is enough to permit even the most inexpert of artists into creating an artwork that someone somewhere may really like.Hence the conclusion that art or visual aesthetics, more particularly in this case, is subjective, giving truth to the adage beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Popularity, however, and the power it holds oer the masses, has a commanding way of dictating which the consumers should support. This control is then used for besides manipulation of consumer-affective decisions of which the powers that be profit from. This is why there tends to be a trend of Art politics that seemingl y commands the taste of people, resulting in the imprint that great art comes from the production of the elite.One would be quick to dismiss Annie Leonards conclusion of the Statesn culture and practices affecting those of the cultures and practices of the southern hemisphere as ridiculous but there argon certain points wherein there findings are seen to be true, most especially with the less than developed countries of which the United States of America hold key influential powers on consumption and culture. The other major(ip) players, on the other hand tend to have a kind of stunted cultural and commercial development as the American trends happen to affect them.This however does not just hold true to the southern hemisphere, as the United States of Americas influence holds strong in many other countries north of the equator. Poet James Oppenheims composition mark and Roses, for example, portrays the struggle for the ideal (roses) and the real (bread), of which the countries under the influence of the United States offend from. Rather than pursuing the development of their culture, they are left to prioritize self-preservation.
