Discusses how we give meaning to art objects and how that meaning is shaped by life experiences and in particular by social, cultural and political context. Suggests how the categories of 'real art' and 'non art' are value laden and connected to the dominant structures within a society. Contributes to a WHO project concerning art and anti-stigma.
