Most of the people believed traditionally, that art form imitates life. The painters represent what they see by producing a scene on a canvas, which happens with the sculptors, too. Writers describe life, while photographers or filmmakers do it even more directly.
Art’s influence on society
The history shows that the art has always been the power of changing society, especially while new media have begun to use for expressing an idea. This attitude led to the government censoring further such use of a particularly powerful medium. In government censorship, art was used as propaganda, so, governments seriously take the effect of art.
It is evident that all of the major dictators of the C20th understood the power of art in order to influence the population. For instance, in Nazi Germany, Hitler set up the Ministry of Propaganda and National Enlightenment, which was headed by Goebbels. He made sure that nothing was performed, published, or exhibited without his approval.
However, even under less repressive governments, the artistic expression of certain ideas can be subject to control.
As a tool for telling the human story, art has been used to tell people what they look like, what they do and expressing the main ideas about the society.
