Well but that's the thing, right? Who gets to decide what the artist's intentions are?

Pornography is what THEY like. Erotica is what WE like.

It's difficult to decontextualize the artist out of the art, I think, and until the artist's generation of critics is dead their product seems more about the context than the actual product.
