15TH NOVEMBER 2014 | TURNER CONTEMPORARY, MARGATE – FOYLE ROOM
Philosophers of art and art historians will debate how we might understand the relationship between art and politics. Is all art political? Is there a difference between political art and propaganda? Can art make a real political impact, or does it just preach to the converted? What are the most useful theoretical models for thinking about the political dimension of art? Such broad issues are compellingly brought into focus by Jeremy Deller’s exhibition.
