VALUE ETHICS VS VIRTUE ETHICS
Art on canvas 2018
What do our ethics look like?
Are your ethics based on values, religion, virtues or duties? What kind of ethic do you have?
On the first work "VIRTUE ETHICS? WTF? SEEMS TO BE SOME OLD SCHOOL SHIT." an imaginary human being whose ethics are based on values, thoughts about virtue ethics, which is symbolically depicted as armor for children and fades slowly, as in a dream. The human being comes to the conviction that this form of ethics is no longer timely.
In the second work "VALUE ETHICS? WELL, THAT'S JUST A SHORT FAD." an imaginary human being whose ethics are based on virtues, thinks about value ethics, which is symbolically represented as a deodorant and shouts at the viewer with his bright colors and at the same time seems to burn and crash. He comes to the conviction that this form of ethics can only be a fad.
If you are listening to the dialogue of the two imaginary people, what would you think? What would you do?
