The Organic artist
Lecture at Wekalet Behna, Alexandria, Egypt
Abstract: The lecture is an attempt to constitute a base for a philosophical argument around the meaning and function of art and the definition of the artist in regard to her role and relation to society. Stemming from Antonio Gramsci’s notion of the “Organic Intellectual” and his critique of intellectualism as a field of specialization, The thesis is a proposition towards the formation of an “Organic Artist” as a driving force for social change. Such a proposition can only be perceived under a conceptualization of art as an intellectual faculty rather than a profession.
