New Definition of Art by the Swedish Minister of Culture – It’s All ‘Bout Morals

Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth jumps out of her closet to issue a strange critique of the institutional definition of art after seeing a video of graffiti artist NUG. The question must be if certain levels of moral crossings should be forbidden or condemned by the artworld and its institutions. Of course, as she suggests in this interview, killing someone should not be equaled as art, but how do we look upon civil disobedience or activism? There is an interesting text of art and morals in the anthology Arguing About Art, review of it here.

Watch a funny remix of the statement by Pluskvam or is it Lars Vilks:

Or the original video here

Stay tuned fo mo on this topic.
