I really liked Christina's dual perspective as artist and teacher, as
well as the simple list of key points that we ought to take seriously.
"What power do we WANT artists to have?" That helps move things away,
I'm sure, from too great suspicion of the arts, since who wouldn't want
artists to have more power? Indeed, one can argue that when art sucks
up, like lesser Neo- classicism under Napoleon, it is only more easily
ignored and forgotten. Of course, that doesn't make more intricate, not
entirely intended, complicity less challenging and troubling, but at
least it offers some perspective before I get self-righteous.
