What is Art

Art is one of the most general categories of aesthetics. As a rule, art is understood as an objective understanding of reality; the process and result of the expression of the inner and outer (in relation to the Creator) world. Consequently, art is a creative activity that not only reflects the interests of the artists, but also those of other people.

The understanding of art has changed with the development of philosophical, social and aesthetic norms and evaluations. For a long time, art was regarded as a type of cultural activity that satisfies man’s love of beauty. In this sense, art is a skill the product of which gives aesthetic pleasure. However, with the development of social norms, ethical and aesthetic evaluations, art has acquired the right not to describe any activity aimed at creating forms of expression as merely aesthetic and artistic. In a broader sense, we can compare art to drama; art has the ability to evoke an emotional reaction in other people.

In a modern sense, we can think of defamiliarized objects mirrored in different media as art. In this regard, we are all artists. Vladimir Nabokov wrote in Ada, “In ‚real‘ life we are creatures of chance in an absolute void–unless we be artists ourselves.”
