about

The Ethics of Art explores the growing ethical consciousness within the artistic community, as it relates to art's production and distribution mechanisms. It attempts to show how the artistic community engages in creative, social dialogue based upon the potential of the body. The first of this book's two sections, "Ecosophy," focuses on eco-art practices and the ways in which the ethical turn in the arts implies a greater receptivity to our environment. The second section addresses the contemporary dance scene as an example of this phenomenon, showing how it exhibits renewed interest in "caring" for one's body, rather than transgressing it, both on the individual level and on that of the larger "body politic" of cooperation and collaboration. In this volume, the singular voices of artists are as important as the scholarly contributions.
