Imre Toth’s text is a broad fresco of forms of artistic expression in Antiquity. He makes subtle distinctions between the different regions of the world, based on the relationship between art and power. Whereas art has often been used to establish political power, especially in Mesopotamia or Ancient Egypt, Greek democracy favoured self-awareness. It encouraged human liberty, authorized individuals to make choices and enabled the appearance of secular and political art. In Greece, art is an object, kalos, beauty. But unlike science, art is also pure subjectivity, a burning bush of politics. However, science can never be placed above art, even in contemporary societies.
