A voice contributing to the discourse on contemporary ethical issues in art and design, this text addresses the relationship of ethics to art and design practice, and the ability of the arts to "matter" in the 20th century "fin de siecle". Leading theoreticians and practitioners of art explore, through informal discussion or the formal essay, issues of political space, user-centred design, the social responsibility of the artist, design legislation, cultural hierarchy, modernism as colonialism, and the ethical opportunities and minefields of postmodernism.
