1) The primary way I see the film The Price of Everything relating to Berger’s Ways of Seeing, is in how art is portrayed. In the film The Price of Everything, for Sotheby’s Auction House Amy Cappellazzo, the only valuable art for her is one which makes her a lot of money. Instead of art been portrayed as something beautiful and aesthetically pleasing, the film depicted how art was seen more as an asset to both art collectors and dealers; as for one art served to flaunt their social status, and for the other it served as a way to make more money off of an artwork once a collector decided to sell it.
2) I don’t necessarily believe that art should be held ethically accountable. The purpose of the painting should be determined by the artist themselves, and regardless of whether they choose to make it for their own pleasure, money, or to provoke their audience it is essentially up to the artist/creator themselves to decide.
3) Personally, I don’t agree with the fact that art should only be valuable if it makes money, however, I believe that artists should be remunerated fairly for their art, and if that means that only art collectors will have access to these works and not the general public, then so be it. While I would love to see beautiful art displayed in museums so that we could all enjoy it, I also have to think about the fact that for most artists their art is the only source of income they have.
