CULTURE AND IDEOLOGY If all culture is to some extent historically determined and all artists bear the trace of specific value systems and the structures that reproduce or contest them, works of art are inevitably bound to particular ideas and beliefs which “originate in material activity, and in the human capacity to reflect on such activity” (Wolff 1990, 50).
