My English teacher and I were having a discussion earlier today about if photographs limit understanding in the world. I've been wondering if they do or not because there are so many sides to look at (expressionalist, realist, etc.). But that really isn't the point of this post. During my discussion I brought up a train of thought that all art is in its own way biased towards the thoughts of the artist. In my mind any thing created by a human is biased to his or her train of thought at the time. My teacher argued otherwise saying that all art is not biased. Basing her argument on the fact that art is meant for the sole purpose that the observer determines his/her own opinion.
I'm just wondering what you guys think. Is all art biased or is it completely unbiased until the observer determines their own opinion?
I hope some day we can all put aside our racisms and prejudices and just laugh at people
