There's nothing artistic and skillful about pornography. It's just two or more people having sex with each other with people filming it close-up. People confuse this with art because art can often contain nudity, but I think you've got the wrong idea. Porn is definetely NOT art.. and i would hardly call it acting.. anybody can have sex
Art may be erotic but porn is porn.
NO it is a sign of mental instability!
Anything that expresses feeling or opinions is an art. Now, there are variables which people view something as acceptable art. Because sex is considered something to be private, porongraphy is mostly considered as "trash." But, some art pornography, in films that involve a story is considered accectable art. All art is strictly objective, therefore categorizing pornography is objective. I am an artist, a painter and writer. I understand the art of pornography, some of it is artfully done, and some I find repulsive. It each his own. The most important thing in the acceptance of any art form, is just that : to be open enough to view it and either reject or accept it. When we stop doing that we are in trouble1
anything nowadays would be considered art to people
if Picaso were to paint a circle and a line on a canvas, people would worship it
If people considered something odd like finding a phone book ripped in half, someone would walk up and say thats art
anything that expresses human nature visually, people would consider art
so yeah, i guess porn is a kind of art, so long as some1 thinks that
what is art?
Art as form has its roots in the philosophy of Immanuel Kant, and was developed in the early twentieth century by Roger Fry and Clive Bell. Art as mimesis or representation has deep roots in the philosophy of Aristotle.
Generally art is a (product of) human activity, made with the intention of stimulating the human senses as well as the human mind; by transmitting emotions and/or ideas. Beyond this description, there is no general agreed-upon definition of art, since defining the boundaries of "art" is subjective, but the impetus for art is often called human creativity.
The evaluation of art has become especially problematic since the 20th century. Wollheim distinguishes three approaches: the Realist, whereby aesthetic quality is an absolute value independent of any human view, the Objectivist, whereby it is also an absolute value, but is dependent on general human experience, and the Relativistposition, whereby it is not an absolute value, but depends on, and varies with, the human experience of different humans.
In the 1800s, artists were primarily concerned with ideas of truth and beauty. There was a radical break in the thinking about art in the early twentieth century with the arrival of Modernism, and then in the late twentieth century with the advent of postmodernism. Clement Greenberg's 1960 article "Modernist Painting" defined Modern Art as "the use of characteristic methods of a discipline to criticize the discipline itself".
Greenberg originally applied this idea to the Abstract Expressionist movement and used it as a way to understand and justify flat (non-illusionistic) abstract painting:
Realistic, naturalistic art had dissembled the medium, using art to conceal art; modernism used art to call attention to art. The limitations that constitute the medium of painting – the flat surface, the shape of the support, the properties of the pigment — were treated by the Old Masters as negative factors that could be acknowledged only implicitly or indirectly. Under Modernism these same limitations came to be regarded as positive factors, and were acknowledged openly.
Though only originally intended as a way of understanding a specific set of artists, this definition of Modern Art underlies most of the ideas of art within the various art movements of the 20th century and early 21st century. The art of Marcel Duchamp becomes clear when seen within this context; when submitting a urinal, titled fountain, to the Society of Independent Artists exhibit in 1917 he was critiquing the art exhibition using its own methods.
Andy Warhol became an important artist through critiquing popular culture, as well as the art world, through the language of that popular culture. The later postmodern artists of the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s took these ideas further by expanding this technique of self-criticism beyond high art to all cultural image-making, including fashion images, comics, billboards and pornography.
esp pornography is a criticism of mass production techniques, consumerism etc
