"Why is there a need for High vs Low Art?"
This is also another question which can be asked.
My point is: Asking questions will somehow reflect people's value
judgements and beliefs and at the same time the questions themselves will
induce readers to think critically about art. It may be a fundamental aim
for aesthetic studies, too. So I think asking question is a good exercise
for both teachers and students to execute their aesthetic drivers in mind.
Another crazy thought,
"Are the questions being asked also a sort of art, too?"
