Rt and Belief (based on Serranos Piss Christ”)
For my Visual Art class in university we need to submit short online post on BD. Here is the assignment : Cynthia Freeland in her book But is it Art?”(which we read in class) suggests that art cannot function as ritual in the modern world, where the viewers of art are not bound together by a unifying belief system. Does a work like Serranos Piss Christcontribute to the further distraction of belief, or could it have a positive role to play in relation to quastions of faith and religious belief in the modern world?”
Unfortunately, I dont have access to a copy of painting right now, but please let me know if youre unable to find online.
Thank you for your help!
