Don't Call Racist Art "Provocative"

I am not certain about the extent to which Dasha Zhukova is aware of the offensiveness of the objectification of Black women's bodies as represented in this demeaning photograph. If the intention of art is to engage in political and social issues, shouldn't the artist(s) at least gain some insight of the subject he/she has chosen to represent or interrogate?
