Ying Yang The Social Issues in Art


" Ying Yang, The Social Issues in Art " is the art archive book that displays the potential of art in making a better society. The goal of this book is to inspire readers and give the idea of what actions we can take in the future. There are two chapters and two kinds of artworks introduced in this book. The first chapter shows the artworks that make people become aware of social issues. Artworks shown in the first chapter that shows social issues are negative, but I was hoping that people would learn, and rethink about their daily behavior. In contrast, the second chapter introduces the artworks that are actually trying to solve the issues through community or by directly targetting people’s issues. This chapter is intended to make readers to think about unity that gives hope for a better future and inspire them to take action.
