so where can ya get this unpolitical beer anyway?
you're right! actions aren't always politically motivated... but that doesn't necessarily prevent them from serving political purposes!
because we're all different, think differently, have different histories, pasts, experiences etc... we all understand and percieve things differently. something which can seem harmless and decorative to one person might actually be obscene and offensive to another.. you get my point?
anyway.. i think youre right in a way about not letting the 'political message' get in the way of the quality of the actual 'art' which you're purporting to create.. ..after all, if its crappy art, you'd be better off 'sending a telegram'.. but there is no stopping art from becoming a political tool etc...
