Art and the constitution


Art and the Constitution addresses a longstanding problem in free speech theory: the status of art as expression protected by the First Amendment. The article, drawn from Professor Bezanson's forthcoming book, Art and the First Amendment (U. Ill. Press 2008-09), suggests that art should be broken down into two separate forms, propositional art and non-propositional art, with propositional art to be protected under the traditional speech paradigm and non-propositional art to be protected under an altogether different paradigm that results in art enjoying a distinct and greater degree of freedom under the First Amendment.
