Who the course is for: This course is taught in English. The course is suitable as a refresher course for artist with fine art education. Mandatory course in B.A. fine art.
This course engages with the upheaval and the changes that have characterised our ideas about the role and the characteristics of visual presentation on a two-dimensional surface since the birth of Modernism. The painting as a medium has during this time gone through death and resurrection and the photograph has found its place as one of the most significant part of contemporary art.
There is a particular focus on the possibilities of these mediums in exploring reality and the ideological premises on which such an exploration rests. Theories on how we perceive two-dimensional visual art have dominated art theory in the last century and in this course, these theories are explored in depth.
Assessment: Essay, home examination and smaller assignments.
