This ethical project is focused on ethical boundaries in contemporary transgressive art. In my opinion I was exploring the idea that so much of contemporary art is about pushing the boundaries and shocking people – but there is a significant grey area for how far is too far. I realized that transgressive art no longer succeeds on its own terms in societies where language, prohibition and morality have become increasingly malleable. This compels me to rethink the relationship between contemporary art and ethics, and focus our attention on the potential of artworks to propose new values rather than simply challenge pre-existing moral codes.
I believe that artists should first ask questions. Artists should actively set an ethical framework for their goals. Although there are some ethical issues that are worth discussing, I think these are very important grey areas. This is the aesthetic relationship between contemporary art and ethics from new construction.
