A recent event on DC Universe has raised this issue (I won’t draw more attention to the particular instance. Read the forums; it will be easy to figure out.), an issue that seems to come up in our society all the time these days. I’m interested to hear your thoughts.
Do you still read content despite an artist’s personal life and actions? Or do you shun it?
Should a company that paid someone work-for-hire many years ago reduce access to that work because of an artist’s personal life?
What if that work had many other collaborators, whose work will receive more or less attention depending on the decision to shun or not?
What are your thoughts on the relationship between art and artist?
What are the responsibilities of the consumer when faced with scandalous artists’ art? Is there a responsibility?
Please share your thoughts and any thoughts in adjacent arenas. I very much want to hear what you have to say.
