What art does

In “What Art Unveils,” Alva Noë says that art makes things strange. “Art unveils us ourselves. Art is a making activity because we are by nature and culture organized by making activities. A work of art is a strange tool. It is an alien implement that affords us the opportunity to bring into view everything that was hidden in the background.”

Moral duties of artists and their audiences

Must artists, especially classical musicians, stand up for human rights? In particular, what are our moral expectations of conductors?

Is it morally required, morally permitted, or morally prohibited to boycott the works of an artist accused of moral depravity? Case in point: Woody Allen.
