Conflicts, ethics and aesthetics



Apprehending the ways conflicts are represented in the artistic process and the underlying ethical questions is a complex matter not only for artists and professionals but also for the audience. What sets the line between pure artistic representation on an aesthetic basis and the ethical repercussions and connotations of an artwork in conflict zones? What aspect should prevail? Is art a critical, transformative social practice? Or is it a creative and self-reflective form of expression? What role should cultural professionals play in the course of supporting creativity as a fundament of the arts?
