Politics and art again

No art floats untied to its time. Even abstract art gained its freedom to extract itself through untying links. Behind these walls we indulge (rightfully) in art that that feasts the eyes, whilst outside these walls the excluded, refugees, the poor, the communities deemed unfit by police and state, are strangled. The artist’s role is never to forget this and always to know this, but more to do something about it.

Exhibition Persistence/Resistance at Rubicon Ari February 2018

In this space I immerse myself in the tangled problems of art politics and polemics. I remain with the question but i think it was an interesting one. These photos taken by Patricia J Casten look at my exhibition from am outsiders eyes. I enjoyed dwelling with her with her interpretation of my exhibition.
