Artforum.com presents artists Carrie Mae Weems, Matthew Weinstein, Marilyn Minter, Hans Haacke, Nadia Ayari, Nancy Chunn, and Vitaly Komar as they discuss political art.
Carrie Mae Weems- "We don't have the privilege of not being political. We don't have the privilege of not being social. I can't think of any single artist- African-American artist, Latino- American, Asian-American artist who does not have to negotiate this issue of the political".
Matthew Weinstein - " Political Art is not going to change the things that it's target. But what it does do is presents a model of change."
