Chapter 17 of my research book about the morality and politics of our time as seen through the subjects of representational art is now available.
What are the moral and ethical responsibilities of representational artists to each other?
Morality and Politics in the Art Community
There are rumors of recurring issues affecting the arts community, including representational artists. Rumors such as:
–jurors who judge and award cash prizes to friends
–teachers who show up too impaired or unprepared to teach
–artists who use others’ photographs to create new works without credit
If rumors such as these are true, and issues such as these exist, are they moral or are they political issues?
