PHILOSOPHY OF BEAUTY
The social role of painting art
Many intellectuals believe that:
Art, as social production, has no impact on other forms of social life. Artistic creation does not alter social, political or economic systems; Whereas the reverse is very possible. Art, as a human practice, does not change the spectators who receive it. Art does not educate men, refines their personalities and does not remove them from violence; One can appreciate Raphael and participate in a genocide.
But why did all the dictatorships of history put art under surveillance? (Medieval Europe, Nazi Germany, Soviet Union, current Middle East …)
There’s a reason for sure.
Arthur Coleman Danto (American, philosopher and art critic, 1924-2013) Had written in his article “After the end of art, 1996” his famous phrase: “Art is dangerous”. He recalls a remark by Kant that ugly things can be objects of beautiful representations. “The furies, the diseases, the devastation of war, etc.” Can, as harmful things, be described beautifully and can even be represented by paintings. “
