ivory towers and golden showers--arts + culture, high/low and the places in between.
Tuesday, April 1, 2014
When we judge one anothers' life work or intentions we undermine the solidarity and bridges we can build across cultures, politics, socioeconomics, etc. Artists and activists encountering each other: If you don't like someone's art or way they're going about their social activism, you can state it, respectfully, but don't tear them down or question their right to do things in the way they feel called to do them. Support each other while holding each other accountable for self-destructive or generally destructive methods.
