Abstract [en]

As objects in the arts field, according to many theories, of which some will be introduced in the paper, aren't established as art pieces by the same predetermined laws as natural scientific phenomenas, it's a hard and complex task to evaluate what counts as art and furthermore what is forceful art. The core purpose of this master thesis is to examine what critics in Swedish papers Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet classify as political art and how it affects its audience. The most relevant theory in this thesis is about political art and its categories, and requirements for convincing and creating an active change, developed by Irish artist Caoinhghin Ó Croidheán, who is also politically active. The method used for approaching and investigating the issue is a qualitative content analysis.

Key words: Political art, Bourdieu, Croidheáin, Danto, Dickie, institutional art theory, qualitative content analysis, art criticism, press
