What does "The problem can be put like this: ~~ that we need to make powerful in the world. " mean? In the history of revolutions and coups, which tell us the most condensed and dramatic stories of political change, there are no records of militants heading first fro the art gallery. If you were trying to change a country, you would go to the TV stations, not the museum. This is not an oversight, but a clear recognition of the limits of art as an agent of change. It does not mean that art is irrelevant to progress; it’s simply a limitation that those who love art most should be aware of. The problem can be put like this: art is the carrier of a set of concerns, skills and experiences that we need to make powerful in the world. But art in the traditional sense is a very imperfect agent for helping these values to become more significant in the world. Loving art should therefore, and rightly, be connected with the skills and projects that aren‘t those of the traditional art enthusiast. What does "The problem can be put like this: ~~ that we need to make powerful in the world. " mean?2) in the sentence, The problem can be put like this, what does the problem mean? Could you explain it to me?

It's a conceptual question, less of a problem to solve necessarily and more of an implication: 'Art can represent powerful and important values, but that it struggles to actually help promote those ideas in society.'
