ART AND REVOLUTION/ART AND POLITICS : AN OVERVIEW

Contemporary artists all over the world are currently engaging with politics.
But there are precedents where artists reflected and defined the cultural language for some of history’s great turning points. This course looks at the art, music, and literature that evolved from several major revolutions and the responses to them.


Just what is the relationship between art and politics? Is it, as Mohammed Abu Afefa says, that “the role of art emerges after revolutions. It reflects, analyzes and records history”? Do artists have a duty to engage with events as they happen? And how have those in positions of power responded to criticism? (In recent years China’s Ai WeiWei, for instance, has risked his safety to critique his government). This session will discuss the various strategies and approaches used by artists who have chosen to make explicitly political work. It will also look at a range of responses from assimilation into the mainstream to repression
