Thanks all for your opinion on nudity in art. Where to draw the line between art and pornography? Please find here blogger’s responses:
lllluna: Nudity is traditionally a part of art. And the line between art and pornography is entirely drawn by the viewer.
noonename: The body is a medium in art, and a purpose in pornography.
2headedsnake: Art is when you get excitied emotionally, intellectually or spiritually. Pornography is when you get excitied physically.
autumnvillanelle: Nudity in art shows the human body in a natural state while porn feeds false images to the mind.
snikthwip: Kenneth Clark wrote about differentiating between nakedness and nudity in art : To be naked is to be deprived of our clothes, and the word implies some of the embarrassment most of us feel in that condition. The word “nude”, on the other hand, carried in educated usage, no uncomfortable overtone.
