demystification Does "demystification of art" in this context mean "to remove the ambiguities of art" or "to remove the sublimity of art "? Context: In adopting ‘interventionist’ strategies in order to advertise art, the campaign blurred the boundaries between the two regimes in a way that is symptomatic of the apparently ever-increasing fluidity of contemporary culture. Indeed, the fact that the campaign could take such a publicly irreverent stance towards both traditional and contemporary art can be read as a sign of détente and of the demystification of art.

It means to remove the mystery, or perhaps the mystique, surrounding art, and so to make it more accessible.
