Write 3 pages thesis on the topic personal statement of master program application: arts politics. At a tender age, by attending local exhibitions of contemporary art in my local city, I realized the impact that art had on the world. Hundreds of people would flock the exhibition, learning about their culture, while others learned of the current events in a satirical and funny way through paintings and controversial sculptures. This was one of the reasons that pulled me into the arts. The creativity with which artists expressed themselves through their art, especially in politics, amazed me. This, coupled with the studies in my subsequent years in high school, cultivated a desire in arts politics. I wanted to understand the power that art had in influencing people’s lives, pulling them together, and its ability to change the world’s politics. As my interest in art progressed, so did my desire to study arts, more specifically arts politics. Currently, there is a big influence of art on the global politics, if the current wave of globalization is anything to go by. For instance, the growing significance of Asian countries in the global economy and in particular China has received an artistic uproar. Politics of neo-colonialism and the increased need of the West to control the global economy form the biggest source of political art in exhibition and in media. With the increase in the uptake of technology, there has been a significant change in the arts industry. While initially artists relied on art exhibition, currently the various forms of art and art exhibition make art significant in the global economy. More artists use advertising as a way of exhibiting their art. others prefer social media, audio-visual and print media. This has promoted the growth of arts in the international economy. A number of factors necessitate the study of arts politics. With the increase in the application of art in the world economy, I want to change the use and application of art in various sectors of the economy. I hope to make the advertising and production sector of the world more profitable by influencing the way artists use their talents and artistic abilities. Further, I want to change the perception that the world has in relation to the art politics, hence encouraging people to invest in art. This is possible through art related talks, organizing workshops and seminars on the importance of art in society, and changing the notion that people have on art politics. This requires adequate knowledge and understanding of art. This is only possible through further training on art politics. However, of more importance to me at a personal level is the ability of art to draw people’s attention and influence the world politics and economy. I have realized that lack of training and skills hinders my career development and growth. Increasingly, people rely on art in their daily lives. Creating captivating content for the media, raising awareness of an issue, and advertising an idea or a product all call for the use of art. As such, people have taken learning art at an advanced level. My interest in arts at a tender age influenced my career choice at the undergraduate level. I wanted a more arts related field, thus settling for the Bachelor of Arts in Strategic Communication with a major in Advertising and a minor in Business Administration.
