political / theme
Matters concerning the polis, the city and its citizens. Engaged, as a cog is engaged, with the machinery of government, with policy, with the shenanigans of the man or men behind the curtain. By implication partisan. Often indignant, self-righteous, hectoring or didactic. Yet frequently and whatever the affiliation, concerned with shortcomings in the status quo and committed to effecting change.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
