Latin translation of "art for protest's sake"???

I want it to be a sort of play on words of the expression: "ars gratia artis," (in French, 'l'art pour l'art''), saying that art has great value in it's use in protest or revolutionary art and more broadly, sociopolitical value. A refutation of Aestheticism or the Aesthetic Movement of the 19th century.

Would "ars gratia ─źnsurrecti┼Źnis" work?

Thanks! I know this is asking a lot since there likely isn't an existing idiomatic expression.

@heathermbro,
Lewis & Short's A Latin Dictionary gives this definition of insurrectio:

a rising up, insurrection

If this is what you mean by "protest", then yes, that works.
