Critique of Revolutionary Art
Under tyrannical rule, critique typically submits to censorship and the desires of the systems monitoring it. Its role becomes confined within the limits enforced on all forms of creativity.
The revolution- its events and innovations- have been subjected to plenty of empty criticism, but it has also formed the bases of many sound critiques. If anything, this indicates how critics are drawn to the revolution and all of its facets. Innovators involved in the revolution, whatever their contributions and however committed they may be, should in turn accept the critique addressing their work. They ought to avoid taking critique personally, and rid themselves of any delusions of grandeur and infallibility passed down from the age of tyranny.
The revolution was launched in the name of freedom above all else. If freedom means releasing the creative spirit in the absence of censorship, then it also means employing the critical mind. The critical mind alone is capable of assessing and motivating creativity, as well as protecting it from the horrors of tyranny.
