Title Is cultural appropriation ever okay? Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Aesthetics for Birds Media type Web Duration/Length/Size 1453 words Country United States Date 22/08/18 Description Aesthetics for Birds is a blog that aims to bring people working in aesthetics and philosophy of art together with each other, as well as with artists, the artworld, and others in philosophy and the academy. The blog was founded in June 2013 by Christy Mag Uidhir (University of Houston). It is now owned and run by Alex King (University at Buffalo, SUNY).
This edition of Artworld Roundtable appears in collaboration with Chris Richards, the pop music critic for the Washington Post. Over the next several weeks, we’ll present a series of roundtable discussions based on Richards’ “five hardest questions in pop music”: “cultural appropriation, problematic lyricism, selling out, the ethics of posthumous listening, and … separating the art from the artist.” AFB has rounded up several thinkers working in these areas to see what they have to say about each question. Richards has provided AFB with key examples to draw out the problems and complexities of each debate. Up first is cultural appropriation.
