The articles provided a perspective on histrorical events that highlighted the power and importance of art in protest, and helped to ask more questions about the nature, power, and driving forces of art. Art and the recording of historical protests helps to preserve and memorialize the devotion and fervor that caused the protest, and how important that preservation is for the societal good.
I honestly found the analysis of the articles to be pretty weak overall. They tended to focus on reciting statistics already presented by the artists and made very surface level analyses of the artwork, focusing more on the experience of seeing the art rather than its message. The extra article made an argument, but did so in a very unconvincing manner that made their lack of understanding of fundemental political principles very clear. They also failed to tie together the aspects of protest that they discussed at all, creating a number of smaller, disjointed articles rather than a long, cohesive argument.
