May I suggest a slight adjustment of language? A work of art can REPRESENT a political issue but it can't BE political.
Only lived situations are political, only lived conditions or circumstances are political. Politics is about possible relations among people. These situations, circumstances, conditions or relations provide the context(s) within which we claim that a work of art (or anything else) is political. Control of context is control of meaning is control of reality.
