Question: For my Dissertation I'm studying artists that have created work that has not always been accepted in our democratic society, can you help me give some examples. I've already used these artists: Banksy, Andre Serrano and Jean-Michel Basquiat (Not a long list, I know!) When mentioning artists can you please explain why their works caused controversy. Thanks!

Duchamp's Fountain. It was controversial because not only did they find a urinal offensive, but also because he didn't really do anything to it. He just signed a urinal and called it art. Also, The Holy Virgin Mary by Chris Ofili. It's a portrait of the Virgin Mary painted in elephant dung and surrounded by the rear ends of women from porno mags. It's pretty obvious why this one offended people. Hope those helped. Good Luck on your dissertation!

From art history class I recall that Aubrey Beardsley was considered controversial in his time. Maybe still would be today, although people do seem to tolerate a lot more these days. "Aubrey Beardsley was the most controversial artist of the Art Nouveau era, renowned for his dark and perverse images and the grotesque erotica, which were the main themes of his later work. His most famous erotic illustrations were on themes of history and mythology, including his illustrations for Lysistrata and Salomé."

To add to your list: Arno Breker - representative of Nazi art -o National Socialist era in Germany. His sculptures focussed on the beauty of Aryan body, health, strength, competition, collective action and willingness to sacrifice the self for the common good, and also the glorification of militarism. Adolph Wissel (Nazi) - folk paintings glorify German folk and farm life and virtues of hard work

Silvester Originally Answered: Is Ordinary Level Business for the JC much easier than Higher Level?
My advice would be to put as much effort as you can into studying, but if you are still not confident after trying the past papers, then do the ordinary paper. When is the exam? Do not spend all your time studying for this subject at the expense of others, but if you have time you may be able to prepare for the higher paper instead of dropping down. Decide for yourself. You could practise your accounting, do past exam papers and use the method in your textbook. Once you have done them a few times, you might not find it so difficult. I always found them a bit of a struggle myself, but that is because I used to copy homework and didn't practise much. (lazy me!). For the theory part here are some studying techniques- Write out your notes according to topic and read over them. Try looking away and see if you can say what is on your page. Draw a circle/ bubble with the name of the topic in it. Coming out from this have arrows pointing towards bubbles which have the main points. Read over it a few times. Visualise this picture and see if you can call out the points from memory. Write down bullet points on cards and get someone to quiz you. Write out past exam questions and write down the things you know about the topic. Check with the book. Add additional information you missed. Try again. For all exams it is up to you whether you do pass or honours papers, but do your best. In Ireland, it is only the Leaving Certificate that matters for colleges and universities, but that doesn't mean you should take it handy, the Junior Cycle is preparation for the Leaving Cert cycle. Here is a word of advice form my own personal experince- When I did my Junior Cert, I dropped form honours to pass in 2 subjects (maths and french) I wish i had stuck at it and tried harder. I took those subjects at ordinary level for my leaving cert after that, it was the class I was placed in and I didn't think much about it. But when it came to calculating points for uni, I could see that the pass subjects were worth a lot less than honours. I wish the teachers had told me more about the opportunities I would have had for colleges and universities when I was younger, and that it is best to do honours subjects to get more points. Bear this in mind if you do take the ordinary paper. You should try and take as many Honours subjects as you can for the Leaving Certificate because you will have more options if you want to go to uni or college. I hope the exams go well for you!
