USA: Art unleashed

Extremes of art and violence

The US art world has become a "moral cesspool" says leading art critic Roger Kimball. "In testing the limits of free expression, the art world has demonstrated its emancipation from all manner of social and aesthetic norms." On the contrary, says Edward Lucie-Smth, "Museums and other official venues have become the places where minority groupings...seek to assert their cultural rights." Index offers the arguments. The choice is yours.

With Judy Chicago, Roger Kimball, Edward Lucie-Smith, David C. Mendoza, Amy Adler, Okwui Enwezor and more.

Meanwhile, in Russia, we assess the state of democracy and civil rights in the critical weeks before the country's most important election to date.
