"Should art educate, inform, organize, influence, incite to action, or should it simply be an object of pleasure?"

The talk will explore the above quote by Agusto Boal in relation to a range of different views of artists and thinkers on this subject and will open out into a discussion on the role of art in society today in light of political transformation in the region and the art market. It will also open a discussion on role of the art education institution in our times and what should be its approaches to educating future artists and their relation to their community and society.
