Drawing the Line: What to Do With the Work of Immoral Artists From Museums to the Movies

Recent years have been punctuated by revelations and reminders that popular artists (musicians, directors, actors, comedians, painters) have committed a range of morally condemnable acts. What should we do, think, and feel in response to these actions? Does it affect the aesthetic quality of the work these artists have produced? Is it morally permissible for us to engage with or enjoy that work? Should such work even be available for consumption, or should it be “canceled”? In short, can we separate the art from the artist? In Drawing the Line, I argue that it doesn’t matter whether we can separate the art from the artist, because we shouldn’t. Taking both art and morality seriously requires grappling with them together. Recognizing the moral and aesthetic relationships between art and artist is essential to determining when and where we should draw the line when good artists do bad things.

Professor Matthaei

We are in the midst of an epoch paradigm shift from inequality to solidarity, according to Professor Matthaei. Capitalism is a hybrid system, caught in between the two.  It was built on a foundation of hierarchy and domination, but also on a commitment to equal rights and the opportunity to advance. Professor Matthaei will describe multiple ways that each of us can participate in this epoch shift.

In the past couple of years, the Club has supported "pop-up" events which the board hoped would interest alums in the area. Since these events are not possible at the moment, we have held one online program, given by Martha Hanner on her early years at the Jet Propulsion Lab in California. This worked out well and the board has decided to facilitate Zoom pop-ups and would be happy to receive proposals from you. 

Please fill out this online form to submit your ideas. 

Thank you for your participation as presenter or viewer!
