The research aimed to study the moral dimension and its representations in the contemporary art. Among the most important results of the research: The art dialectic and ethics are divided between two currents. The first believes that the art is not a subject of moral regulation, and they believe that the strict moralists are unable to appreciate the art aesthetically, and that censorship of art will cause an irreparable loss in the materialistic values of the aesthetic pleasure. It greatly harms the art and the artist himself. The second trend, that it is represented by moralists.
