Abstract (English)

Bloom comments on five exhibitions that gather over 75 American artists around the theme of "art with a message", examining the delicate balance between art as propaganda and art that draws attention to social ills; subjects discussed range from the Rosenberg era and occupied Palestine, to Vietnam and Israeli landscape. Includes three artist's statements.
