Summary/Abstract: Also inherent to the art is social side, which in essence connects the artist and society into a dynamic interaction. This text includes interpretation of the inherent to social psychology concepts of conformism and anti-conformism, following the lines of Theodor Adorno and Walter Benjamin for art as a public antithesis. Draw up a definition of anti-conformist art, based on conflict caused by the resistance against the conformist pressure of the majority.
