Description

Interdisciplinary Elective Course


The overall aim of the course is to analyse and understand the functioning of art worlds in a global context. It is taught primarily by lectures, with accompanying tutorials, and focuses on the different attitudes and values brought to bear on art works by different people in an art world. Because such works are not just appreciated in aesthetic and historical terms, but are also traded as part of an art market, the course seeks to tease apart the strictly cultural and aesthetic from other, social and economic, aspects that affect the production, distribution and consumption of art works.
