GUEST,John Bauman Times They Are A Changin'? - propaganda in art? (9) RE: The Times They Are A Changin'? 31 Aug 00


Whistle stop,

I appreciate you response. The core of the discussion seems to come down to the contention that Art should not be compromised or encumbered with transient detail but should instead transcend the immediate. That's why I thought a folk forum would be an interesting place for this discussion as you all seem quite aware that "Folk" music by its very definition didn't start out its life as "Folk music" rather, its ability to paint the human universal emotion from an event/cause allowed it to transcend to greater meaning and application. It becomes art.

The alternative--propagada, would fall into the catagory of "Craft"

John
