The truth is that there are many talented creatives out there who might not necessarily be the best people behind the scenes. Should we separate the art from the artist, or should their work be boycotted? This great video discusses this rather nuanced topic.
Coming to you from Jamie Windsor, this fascinating video discusses the issue of separating the art from the artist. With the internet exposing our lives and actions more than ever, we see more and more of a person’s life on public display, and often, that can create a complex issue of having to reconcile the actions in their personal lives with their work. If we choose to hold a person accountable through our approval of their work, then we have to consider both what moral standards we agree upon for judgment and what is forgivable or not. And often, whether we like to admit it or not, the more talented a person is, the more leeway they are often given for their actions. While I certainly do not claim to have absolute answers to moral questions, I definitely think it is something we should all think about. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Windsor.
