For this assignment, you are required to find and view the HBO Documentary, The Price of Everything (Kahn, 2018). If you Google search “watch Price of Everything documentary online free” you should be able to find a way to access it. Once you have viewed the film, return to John Berger’s Ways of Seeing and:

1) identify what you take to be the primary way in which the film intersects with his argument.

2) Reflect on your chosen intersection relative to the following two questions: to what extent should art be held ethically accountable? And, to what extent should art and capital be encouraged to co-mingle?

3) Finally, please indicate whether you (dis-)agree with the argument you identify in common between text and film. How does your position on that commonality speak to your answers to 2)?

Each element should take the form of a single paragraph.
