Art is classified as part of the freedom of expression. Pundits rave about artistic expression that should allow artists space to challenge the norms. The question is: what are the responsibilities that artists should always be mindful of when expressing themselves (through arts). In South Africa, artistic freedom is not carte blanche. In arts, like in any other profession, there are standing ethical codes that must be adhered to. Art is a noble craft. It depicts a story that reflects certain aspects of society. Art is hardly neutral and, in most cases, not innocent. But in can’t be a “do as you please” form of art.
