Is Instagram the art of our time? What does that tell us about society? To understand the changing form of contemporary art between the 19th and 21st century not only allows us to understand how society impacts art, but also how new forms of art transform society. Example? One strong media image had the power to transform public opinion on the Syria refugee crisis in 2015.
