There are often debates about what is art? What is literature? What is serious music? We're always doing that, labeling, sorting.
There must be something in our DNA, that as a species we feel the need to but things into categories. Once upon a time this instinct must have been critical to our survival. I like to sort things. One time when I was babysitting at a house that didn't have a T.V. or a radio, I separated a large bag of peanut M&Ms. I own a label maker, I get it.
It still annoys me though when it comes to artistic endeavors.
My answer is, "Who cares?".
Here are some more important questions to ask of a work of art:
Does it capture my attention?
Does it stir something in my mind or heart?
Does it evoke a memory?
Does it get me up dancing?
Does it make me laugh?
Does it take my breath away?
Is it something I want to share?
Is it a good story?
That's the real genetic trait that separates us from the Bonobos, storytelling.
And it is all storytelling.
