Questions & Answers

Q: How should art be judged based on ethical considerations?

Art should be evaluated based on its intentions, but understanding an artist's intentions can be difficult.

Q: Are all works of art primarily intended to have an impact on the audience?

While most works of art intend to be seen by an audience, some artists create for personal fulfillment rather than solely focusing on the audience.

Q: Does discussing the ethical considerations of art make all art political?
