What is the role of art in an age of 'moral indignation'?
Define activist art.
Is political art always activist?
Does beauty have a place in activist art?
Danto suggests both art and beauty have limitations as moral provocateurs. "The problem, as he sees it, is that when art designed to inspire moral response fails as art, it also 'fails morally, extenuated only by the good intentions of the artist'". pg 31
