What to Do with the Work of Immoral Artists from Museums to the Movies

Erich Hatala Matthes

  • Delves into the moral grey area surrounding immoral artists and their artwork
  • Uses a wide range of contemporary and historical examples to grapple with questions of popular concern, like “cancel culture,” the relationship between fans and artists, and specific controversies about artists, for example J.K. Rowling, R. Kelly, and Woody Allen
  • Introduces philosophical concepts in an entertaining and accessible style
  • Designed to help guide the reader through their own thought process, without dictating what they ought to do or think
