Running head: SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT CENSOR ARTS Should a Government Have the Right to Censor Art? Alzahraa Bazroon Wartburg College SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT CENSOR ARTS 2 There are moral grounds associated with the field of arts. In particular, the arts institutions collaborate with artists from around the world that do not share the same moral obligations in foreign nations as they do in their local teaching environments. Based on a particular case of sexual obscenity in coaching female artists, it is not justified for the government to censor art but should implement a sector policy that defines consent levels of arts students in compromising teaching environments. The fierce social condemnation that was unleashed by the denunciation against sexual predators in the film industry, in business and in politics is now entering the world of art, transformed into an instance of unpardonable censorship. The decision of the prestigious National Gallery of Art, in Washington D.C., to indefinitely postpone the scheduled exhibition of the prominent artist Chuck Close when accusations of sexual harassment against him arise is regrettable. It is possible that the name Close has little resonance among the Latin American public, but in the art world the artist enjoys enormous prestige because his monumental paintings and photographs have redefined the art of portraiture. In none of the accusations against this dyslexic and quadriplegic artist, paralyzed from the nape of his neck to his feet, quoted physical assault. The National Gallery denounced him for using sexually inappropriate language with young aspiring painters and for unjustifiably asking them to undress. In this sense, it is true that among painters there is a kind of code of conduct that demands to give advance notice to a model that their work involves nudity and make sure that it has no objection to doing so, to avoid comments on their body and to maintain a professional environment for the duration of the session. In the case of Close, things get SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT CENSOR ARTS 3 complicated because some of the women who accuse him say they went to see him as artists, not as models, and that, far from having an artistic justification, his comments denoted a morbid desire for personal gratification. He accepts that he may have offended them, but attributes it to his habit of speaking in a foul language and not a sexual innuendo. Based on the case briefing, the government can intervene by providing policies that censor certain practices within the arts industry and teaching institutions but is not justified to do so on grounds of social development. However, regulation on the moral aspects of the industry merit the censorship of unconsented requests to make, to be part of, or to induce a responsibility on other to accomplish arts related activity deemed personally offensive, sexually suggestive, or verbally abusive. The government is in charge of controlling state affairs among them social platforms within communities. Social platforms can entail businesses centers, health recovery centers, parks, and other types of recreational and developmental infrastructure. Community production of art involves the establishment of art galleries that provide institutional coaching to adherent artists. Due to the widespread use of art, there art galleries work hand in hand with renowned artists whose work is promoted in the same institutions. Adherent arts’ students, with respect to the type of art they are interested in, join various institutions that are relevant to the interests. The role of the government in these types of arrangements is to access the type of moral message the arts’ sector sends to the target audience and general public and to make amendments to regulatory framework (Mo Tzu, Circa 425 BCE). On the aspect of controlling the morality of the arts sector, a variety of arguments from the book World Ideas that Matter support the role that government may take in justifying censorship of arts. SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT CENSOR ARTS 4 The first support that the government has in support of censoring art is because it stops civilizations from doing their job. According to Mo Tzu, art, in their case referring to music, is destructive to the society. The Mo Tzu associate music with wealth while wealth is associated to higher social class. In their argument, resources that are supposed to be directed to the society such as human capital are directed to listening to music (Mo Tzu, Circa 425 BCE). In government offices such as courts judges do not go to work early and leave late because they spend their time listening to music. According to Mo Tzu, the art of music, as may be reflected to other types of art is directed to the wealthy and spending money, time, and other resources only make art useless to the society. In the case of the modern arts, as Boethius notes while referring to music, that art can be perceived meaningfully as a constructive vice while it can also be lethal. In connection to government role, music that promotes violent is equated to paintings that promote sexuality and violence. Given according to both Mo Tzu and Boethius, these do not yield any significance (Boethius, Circa 500). It is justified that the government should regulate the exposure of compromising arts to the society. Societies that find some arts compromising of their moral standards deem to be protected from the harm of such arts through censorship policies. However, since arts is both an academic field and commercial sector, censorships can only be imposed to protect the general public but not consumers of such art. Shikibu in The Arts chapter of the World Ideas that Matter writes about the art of the novel (Shikibu, 1000 BCE). Writing is a form of art that does not require the reflection of real events. Through fiction stories and wild imagination, the art of writing novels depends on creativity leading audiences into the imaginary perceptions of the authors. However, according to Shikibu, (1000 BCE), history books offer a better account of educating even though they may SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT CENSOR ARTS 5 touch on a small corner of the world. On the contrary, fiction work of art creates imaginary worlds that offer little contribution to human knowledge (Boethius, Circa 500). Based on Shikibu’s argument (1000 BCE) and the earlier quoted case of Close and the censorship of his work, it is observed that art is not limited to visual products but is also imaginary. By invoking imagination in place of using actual human figures, art shifts from one form to another. All the possibilities regarding the transformational nature of art shows if the government was to censor art, it would have to censor all its forms because, according to individual perceptions, every individual is attracted to a unique style or form of art. These forms include music, paintings, fiction novels, and films among others. Various types of arts are taught in art schools and exhibited in art galleries around the world. With reference to accusations of immorality within the arts industry concerning absurd coaching and teaching practices, the government can impose censorships to arts. Nonetheless, while the government can issue sector regulatory policy frameworks, forms of art that depend of controversy would suffer decline. Sexual content and violent music are not the only types of art that the government, with support of the non-supporters of various forms of art, find to be creating social and moral controversy. In this case, the government is not justified to censor art because it can create regulations to control the conduct of the industry stakeholders including the institutions, educators, renowned artists, and support groups.

The World: Ideas that Matter. (pp. 242-247). W. W. Norton & Company. The source offers a wide variety of perspectives that make music/art meaningful to consumers of the art while at the same time provoking a variety of reactions from the same consumer. The author alleges that music is meaningful based on the context it is applied and the beliefs, norms, and lifestyles of the composers. For the topic on whether the government can choose to censor art, the source offers the grounds on when such a need is applicable considerably without inconveniencing the consumers of the art and without allowing the influence of such art on other subcultures that do not support the perspectives of certain genres and concepts of art.

McGlone reflects on the issues that various instructors of art contribute to the issue of art explicitness and instructional ethics. The source’s contribution to the topic at hand is that it offers information relevant to some issues that call for government SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT CENSOR ARTS 8 control in the production and coaching or art and artists. The credibility of the source is related to the reputation and command in quality news coverage of the Washington Post media agency. Mo Tzu. (2015). Against Music. In Austin, M. (3rd Ed.). The World: Ideas that Matter. (pp. 236240). W. W. Norton & Company. According to Mo Tzu, making music is time intensive while listening to it is irresponsible to further wastage of resources such as time. The source’s perspective on music and art in general is that it should not be considered a luxury if it deprives responsible people from carrying out their responsibilities. On the topic of current study, the source supports the idea that, generally, art does not really add value to the people who consume it. The credibility of the source is based on peer-review approach considered in the publishing book sources. Shikibu, M. (2015). On the Art of the Novel. In Austin, M. (3rd Ed.). The World: Ideas that Matter. (pp. 248-252). W. W. Norton & Company. Shikibu focuses her attention on the outcomes that various forms of art have on the general population. From the source, the argument for or against any form of music is neutral since any form of art can be expressed in the form of another. For the source and the current topic, contribution on the aspect that the government cannot successfully impose censorships on art because it would eliminate the entire sector because there are various aspects of art that can be ported from one form to another. The primary source from which the source is extracted offers information credibility for use with this topic. SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT CENSOR ARTS 9
