How do we know what is art?

In this entertaining 7 minute clip, this ‘creature comforts’  video on the arts deals with various viewpoints surrounding the nature of art.

The film begins with the claim, “Art is anything that anyone creates which evokes a reaction from someone else.”

Other claims made by the plasticine models include:

“Just because you say its art, it doesn’t mean it’s art…”

“the monkey that throws pooh, he’s making art, because he’s living the experience….that’s art…”

This is well worth watching…

The British artist, Grayson Perry explores knowledge and art in his BBC Reith Lectures. The first podcast broadcast on 15 October 2013 is highly relevant for TOK.
