Is the artists' mission to be the actively representing the social issues of their society?


Are artists called to be politically and socially active, expressing their point on views I their work? Or should they only limit their art to being creative and visually pleasant? What do you think is the role of art in the second millennium?

    Thanks for sharing your point of view Lisa. I like the concept that the viewer gets to decide the meaning of the artwork depending on what speaks to him/her an political and social subjects don't need to be explicitly represented. Very interesting.
