Humans consider
value in art based on how closely
an ideal reality.

Figures, landscapes, and objects
representing an ideal world
trigger positive responses
The Value of Propaganda Poster Art
- art = threat (it can shape character)
- all things considered "beautiful" are just imperfect copies of beauty itself
- "forms/ideas"
- ex. geometry: shapes like the circle and lines are impossible to perfect. They are just imperfect imitations
Art Aesthetics
[Valued of Imitation]

Are there other examples?
1. Mistake pseudo-art as art
2. Not recognize art because of powerful emotions
Key Characteristics
Clouded Judgement
Value is considered in art in a UNIQUE manner by individuals based on their

emotional responses


innate propensity

towards certain features.

This explains...
Hirst's shark was valued at $8million

Kinkade's paintings are so domestically lauded

some people like Rebecca Black's song "Friday"

"parent" can value "child's" doodle more than you may.
Visually appealing
Intended purpose: persuade the mass public with ideas
Reaction: evoked emotions of support or disagreement
Historical perspective: reactions of appreciation for present state of affairs
Key Characteristics
Propaganda Poster Art
Where do we, as knowers, fit into the picture?
We are surrounded with "art" everyday, but what is valuable to each of us is different.
The way I value different expressions of the art of dance is shaped by the fact that I am a ballet dancer. Some of the "dancing" that I see on stage or TV is not valuable art to me because of the lack of represntation, emotional expression and skill presented.
However, others may view the same work and consider it to be more valuable because of differences in standards.
Value in art is considered based on aesthetics.
How comfortable does it make you feel?
Does it provide a sense of a higher being or journey?
How well is your ideal reality portrayed?
Thanks for watching!
