The society’s attitudes toward art have changed a great deal, especially after the tradition had been thoroughly dismantled around the mid 60s. In a way, the arts have lost their original purpose, before, they were a means of reconciliation with our finite existence, ceding place to clever manipulation and epatage, retaining nothing but superficial features.
