Therefore I am a brain surgeon, what ever I wish to be, but does the outside world agree?
In the movie example:
Mel Gibson has a good line in the Expendables 3 movie; he is observing a painting in a gallery, in a discussion with the gallery owner as the owner's assistant looks on. It is of an abstracted American flag. Mel's character says something like, "Look at this. It's just some paint, brush strokes on a cheap canvas, What do you want for it." "3 mil." "Done." Assistant grins ear to ear. Could be, that ARt is what the money says it is, & everybody follows.
For a certain segment of the population, this is entirely true, which argues for my previous point that in an affluent and segmented society, art is what that group says is art or values, morels, etc.
Thre is a very good definition that states, "all art is regional", which could imply geographic,social,ethnic, economic, etc regions.
So is there crossover between the production region and the academic region, the studio regions, of course but there are those that try and protect their regions.
