Jonathon Keats on Art & Politics

A short while ago I wrote this post prompted by an an essay in (of all places) Forbes by critic Jonathon Keats. In the meantime I have come across two more posts by Keats on the intersection of art and politics that also are smart and provocative. The first - here - is an astute analysis of the ways Pussy Riot traverses that intersection. The second- here - is takes up contrasting modes of "pragmatism" at work in the flamboyant politics of Ai Weiwei and the more easily assimilated performances of Cai Guo-Qiang. Both offerings are highly recommended. I admit that I am not a regular Forbes reader. Keats may change that.
