Art has no responsibility for anyone or anything





this one is just pretty


so you agree ?


art should only be itself, not what people want it to be


how can an artwork achieve such autonomy ? And why do you think it should ?


art could be like nature itself, not painted by you but by nature and her laws. You are simply the mediator. Only then can create something beyond our small existence that relates to something bigger.

Contemporary art has a responsibility for humanity





absolutely!


What kind of responsibility in your opinion ?






[source]



Contemporary art has a responsibility for humanity


if you say so


your thoughts on the matter ?


just doing my thing and trying to feed my family


So does you art in a way has an responsibility for your family ?


not sure why you keep coming back to the idea of responsibility


because im interested in the question if there is one.

Contemporary art has a responsibility for humanity


you can read into it anything you like - the field of interpretation is wide ;)


so its more a question if the artist him/herself feels in a way responsible for humanity ?


and if I am choosing to draw animals you feel that this is not the case?


good point. I think the human condition is intertwined with the condition of animals though.But to rephrase, 'humanity' might be better replaced with the the 'planet' or 'nature' or even 'life'. Tom Holert wrote an interesting article in 'The posthuman glossary' where he writes about the challenge of an art that is aware of its own human bias and shifts it focus on non human life as well.


interesting approach! In fact I also wonder what responsibility exactly means to you. I on my side think that everything Is connected to each other. For me the motive itself is less important than the process of making my work and also how the drawing - which I create with just one line - connects itself with its surroundings. The motives evolve only by interpretation of the abstract forms in the background. If you think art should have a clear and 'out there' message I can tell you that is not what my art does - so maybe in this sense it does not have any responsibility for humanity but I think art can do so much more than manifest of the obvious.


by the way - I also think that it's not only what the artist stands for but what people do with it - so meaning is created by the observer just as much as by the one who creates it.

come again Darlin? I thought it was a sign of Humanity to allow Contemporary Art to be produced at any age...am I saying that correctly? It is to be Human to produce Art.... It is up to Humanity to Make Sure we produce Art.. It IS a Sign of Humanity


So maybe rather than directing humanity in a way it simply mirrors the present human condition ?


Humans Create ... that’s our reason for being... I would say it is a reflection of Ourselves ... ❤️

Has contemporary art a responsibility to anything or anyone ?





food for thought!

Has contemporary art a responsibility to anything or anyone ?


Thank you for your question. I think that if you consciously create art within the realm of a tradition which you respect then yes, it has a responsibility. That responsibility lies with striving to uphold that precious tradition and its values but also to create something new within its realms. That is an incredibly hard thing to do and may take a lifetime, but the enjoyment is in the process. Responsibility is something that we would do well to focus on in all areas of life - it seems to be going out of fashion. What do you think?


Interesting thoughts. Im also very much interested in creating the new in fine arts and culture. Especially when one sees art also (but not only and still somehow different) as academic discipline as other sciences I like to believe that there is very much an repsonsibiliy to advance the subject just as research happens in other fields. But regarding responsibility I tend to understand that just as you said responsibility is something which might be rather universal then specific to certain areas of life. So an artist just has as much responsibility as other people but its his/her decision take it on or not. But for me that collides with the surely romantic idea of art being an important 'pillar of civilization'.


Im not sure if responsibility is falling out of favour but I have the feeling that in the current state of humankind and the planet, taking on responsibility becomes more urgent. With that in mind I often wonder if these kind of repsonsibilities are taken serious enough especially in art, since thats what Im currently focusing on. I understand and respect creating just for enjoyment and out of intrinsic motivation though.


Thank you for your reply. I am very much in agreement with you that art is (to a certain extent) an academic discipline like other sciences with a responsibility to advance the subject. How one does this is open to discussion and is at the root of many of the major disagreements about the contemporary art world. The awareness of tradition is also of utmost importance for me. I do not see tradition as a negative, nor as something to be overthrown and rejected, but instead as something that is to be cherished and built upon. Regarding responsibility – yes there is maybe a universal idea of responsibility for our own actions and the way we live our lives and interact with others in a very general sense. But perhaps the responsibility of creating art takes place within a much more personal sphere; as you say within a very romantic tradition (itself emphasizing the importance of the self and of personal struggle). Also, if one truly believes that art is a ‘pillar of civilization’ as you say (and I totally agree with you), then the burden of responsibility becomes huge. I have always felt that art is a redeeming feature of humanity. All the evil we create, but yet our species also created The Pietà. It’s a conundrum and I often think about it. Is art enough to redeem us? I’m not sure that much of contemporary art is capable of doing so… So to sum up, responsibility is multi-faceted and overlapping. The general, (universal?) responsibility of our actions, the responsibility within the tradition of art as a movement, the personal responsibility as an artist to push ourselves and strive for fulfilment. They are hard to separate! Once again thank you for your question.


thank you for your answers


You are more than welcome- it made me think carefully and that is always good! Nice talking to you!

If art is an important part of the human experience what is its role in the current, worsening human condition ?





what’s your opinion ? I think every artist will have a different option on this. There’s no definitive answer

ı dont understand


Well aesthethics always come with values don't they ? If something is aesthetic we find it beautiful. Doesn't that usually also mean that we find it as something good ?


you have a point there I agree with you 😊
