Does the external form, the outward appearance, still have any significance at all for activist art?
That the dog comb became art is not to be explained through its formal structure. Although form historically played a major role in the bestowal of the appellation art, it is of tertiary importance today. If formal discussions are necessary, then only in the context of function. For instance, it is better to work in an office that has a pleasant atmosphere and it is more appealing to maintain clarity when designing a graphic layout.
