Need 3 quotation from readings that I post and attached. Use at least from 2 readings, and no outside resources needed.
Now that we have had two weeks of class to consider the scope of content which has been approached or represented by artists, I want you to think about your own position. Should there be limits to what is performed or represented within art? Why or why not? Does it matter how an artist or performer chooses to approach this content, or their personal relationship to it? Your answer can address questions of beauty versus ugliness, sexual content, violence, the stakes of one’s own ownership of representation, being an insider versus outsider, imitation versus realness, camp, hipster versus avant-garde versus kitsch, or anything else you’d like to address in answering this question.
You will respond to this prompt by choosing at least three!!!!! quotations from any of the texts which we have read or discussed in class over the last two weeks. You may also include or respond to readings from Week 3 if you wish, though this is not required. In 2!!! pages, written in paragraph form, you will interpret the prompt through relevant texts from our class; as you do this, you should substantiate how the quotations you have chosen are representative of what you find intriguing, compelling, persuasive, problematic, or are otherwise representative of your understanding of these texts as a whole.
You should use MLA in-line citations for all quotations. You do not need to include a bibliography or works cited page. A good rule of thumb is if the source you are citing was physically printed with page numbers then you should include the page number in parenthesis () after the ” ” quotation; if it is published on a web page without page numbers it does not. If the source isn’t a literary source but a visual or audio source then you do not.
Of texts we have read so far: Matthew Arnold, Charles Baudelaire, Julia Kristeva, Judith Butler, Walter Benjamin, Max Ernst, and Aram Saroyan have page numbers; Oscar Wilde, Arthur Rimbaud, John Ruskin, Susan Sontag, and Susan Sontag do not.
Here are two citation examples:
Although I disagree with Matthew Arnold when he says that our consideration of art should only focus on “the best that is known and thought in the world” (150), I still believe that ~~~~. For example, ~~~.
Since watching Roger Corman’s A Bucket of Blood, I have been trying to decide how Oscar Wilde would have reacted to the events of the film, given that he contends, “No artist has ethical sympathies. An ethical sympathy in an artist is an unpardonable mannerism of style.” Although his argument is ~~~~, I think this film complicates this position by ~~~~. In one scene, ~~~~~.
Please format your response double-spaced, in Times New Roman, with 1 inch margins. Please upload your document as either a Word .doc or .docx file, or as a PDF document.
