Reply to "The Spiritual Problem With Modernist Art"

Couple questions,

Looks like you have a few Counselors/Psychologists on your hands Melesi. Very much unconcerned with your views on art, but extremely concerned with diagnosing you and handing out a few 'artistic' prescriptions (purposely fragmented).

I do have a few questions about...

quote:
It is a philosophy that seems to embrace circular reasoning, but it does so because it justifies its a priori conclusion: we are art, so we are right. If you do not agree, then you are wrong.


I like this statement...
However, if I were one of the Modernist artists that fell into this group of artistic misfits, my defense would be...

My art is about the vulnerability of individuals and how they react to the struggle. How do I cope in a digressive society that? The masses have given me the cold shoulder, because I don't conform to this unneccessary struggle, and surcome to an unneccessary fate of being stoned to death. I am stoned because the majority says we can't judge between right and wrong, my right is their wrong simply because morality IS oppressive <--which I don't dispute. So the masses oppress morality, by playing the victimized underdogs <--makes sense to me. I rebel. I may come off as self-righteous, and egotistic because I don't care. But I will expose the vulnerabilty and the shamelessness of the masses. I will be wrong in spite of their right. To me, this is the way of life, this is the way of art. To me art IS the struggle, without the struggle their is no art.

What would I do if we were perfect? What would I do if I didn't have anything to rebel against? Instead of being good for goodness sake, I'd rebel for rebellions sake.

This is MY art.
