From the Romanesque Painting on Church Walls designed to tell the biblical stories and enshrine fear into peasants of their lords and masters, to the advertising industry today. Art has played a key role in Societies ever since its foundation.
Does this love of art come from innate beauty is there a more materialist ( a more dialectical perhaps?) approach. How has art evolved as the economic conditions and social structure of society have moved forward?
What role does art play in our modern Capitalist societies and how is art both benefited by Socialism and Socialism by it?
This week's talk is given by our resident Artists and Society Secretary; Woody.
