Art & Politics

When is art political? How do artists reflect on historical events? Art claims autonomy for itself, while at the same time consistently operating in a mesh of political and societal contexts. Whether they depict power and violence, document a moment in history, or serve as a symbolic expression of persecution and oppression—artworks are always also testimonies to the political discourses of their time.
