Manifesto Arte Utile 3

Year 1980
Text by Pino Poggi

The artist finds his roots in the Society.
The Artist works in the Society.
His creativity expands within the Society in which he lives.
The artist needs to open towards the Society, acting as curious and honest observer.
The Artist bears a share of the responsibility for society which responds to his art.
An Artist, trying to establish a dialog with the Society, needs an aesthetics which enables him to communicate: A Social Aesthetics.
The Society too needs to open towards Culture, behaving as a curious and honest companion.
The Society deceases where Culture is missing.
The Society can survive only, if it continues to be a fertile soil for Culture.
