I just had to share this video by The Economist with you guys. I find it so inspiring how people can use last year’s disaster as an inspiration of new art. How the artists are reminding the people of the threat of atomic destruction that still looms, in such a creative way.
I like how the video puts it, turning artists into activists. Which I think is a good thing, for any forms of art. I’ve recently realized a lot of art since 1900 is made with such motives, which is one of the main reasons why I love modern art. It’s not only ‘pretty’.
Also, on a side note. I’m heading to the UK soon for a very short trip. Visting my friend in Birmingham and spending a day in London, hurrah!
