The term “social content” in art is ill chosen and destructive since it implies a lack of social content in art other than itself. The term should be changed to one which descirbes the intention, namely “social comment”. There is a need for an art of social comment, and for an art of domestic naturalism, and for an art of generalized spatial equations
abstract art. The social need for any one of these does not negate the need for the others.
