The Artist as Activist

Artists do not exist in a vacuum—they are part of a society. And often they are responding to their context and contributing to wider
conversations that question the social values, expectations, and conventions that are part of their everyday lives. Politically charged,
cathartic, antagonistic, or reflective, artists such as Ai Weiwei probe, challenge, and seek to create something new and positive. They play a distinct role as both artist and activist, at times even without meaning to.
