What Is Art Good For? - Films on Demand

Episode 9

Synopsis

The last episode in the series explores the fate of art in the machine and profit-driven world and asks: should art create a realm separate from the modern world, or should it plunge headlong into the chaos while transforming the way we see and live in it? Using the works of artists of the 20th and 21st Century, including Ai Weiwei, Kara Walker, Andy Warhol and Anselm Kiefer, we seek answers to these profound questions. The conclusion is imbued with the hope that art still offers civilization an insight into the incomprehensibility of the world and a way to transcend its horrors with the enduring creativity of the human spirit. © Infobase
