Since the beginning of meme culture, I have been a meme enthusiast. Half of my phone’s storage is memes of different kinds.
Now Professor asked if memes are art or not. Many would think that memes are stupid and made for fun. People who don’t have time or an actual paying job make memes. it is not true.Now if a professor teaching a class where one of the topics is memes, then I am certain that it holds some kind of importance. A class like this evaluates your academic credibility in the most creative and fun way!
Before I answer, let me give you a definition of art which I may or may have not googled. Le definition de art is, “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power“.As you can see I have highlighted parts of that definition. A meme can express a thought, feeling or opinion creatively through an entertaining visualization. Art doesn’t restrict itself to only few aspects. It is universal.
