As a medium of communication, art seems to be the best tool for communal unification and dialogue partly especially in the event of sectarian disputes, due to its eclectic nature.
Parts of social misunderstandings can be traced to different groups putting too much emphasizes on what makes them different, somehow it is harder to appreciate cultural similarities. However art seems to possess the aesthetic ingredients that appeal to people of diverse cultural influences.
From Mikhail Bakhtin’s argument which states that a work of art can be view as a form of conversation that can convey “meanings, interpretations and points of view”. It can be safe to put it in my own words by saying that because of its aesthetic, art appeals to the different ethnic or social groups. Making it a Purposeful aesthetic.
