The problem of art is inseparable from the problem of consciousness. Art was legislated by placing restrictions on the imagination. Romanticism, Symbolism, and Surrealism had been irrational forces channeled through the minds and imagination of artists. Art reduced to monetary value makes money-making the only art, the art to end all art, and modernist culture had reached the dead end. This reveals the bankruptcy of history as a value-producing ideal. It also reflects the cultural narrowness and suicidal exclusiveness inherent in the dogma of history as progress.
