Historically we know that art has fulfilled several functions, from recording important events, communicating when language and writing were not yet accessible to the majority of the population, indoctrinating through the information monopoly, or even alienating in the name of entertainment with the cultural industry. Knowing all this from books, theories, reports, and studies, we can understand a little of its evolution, but it seems that there is still a big question in the air: What is the role of art today? To choose some answers and start the dialogue about this question, Carlos Monareta proposed a work entitled: ‘Deglutindo Bruscky’. The work arises from the need to revisit the inquiry made by Paulo Bruscky in 1970, where he wrote on a board attached to his neck the questions: What is art? What is it for? Carlos proposes that you write your answer or questions about these two maxims here.
