Here we can discuss “the arts” in written, visual and musical forms, and how they relate to cultural trends and problems. We can share and talk of important examples, whether from a conservative academic perspective, or in current popular trends. We can ask critical questions about whether art has “meaning,” or can be “interpreted,” or if there is “good vs bad,” in art. We can consider art as “therapy,” or as psychological diagnosis (e.g. the interesting ‘House, Tree, Person Test’). I have long wanted to discuss the connections between mental illness and artistic creativity. I have some theories about that, which need critiquing. I’ll hope to write an essay or post about that, to get some discussion.
