What is the significance of artistic freedom, for artists and the world at large? Cohn examines various forms of artistic expression through the years and how artists' choices of subject matter, materials, and style reflect their times. Works by Marcel Duchamp, Jenny Holzer, Robert Rauschenberg, and Doris Salcedo serve as starting points for the discussion, which probes the cultural and art-historical impact of the artist's unhindered voice.
