Synopsis

The course explores the role of philosophical thought and the significance of its influence on the visual arts. The theories of art and aesthetics from a variety of periods and social and cultural movements will be discussed through the use of imagery from early 20th Century art (as a starting foundation) expanding into related fields within contemporary conceptual and visual concerns within the 21st Century. This course will further explore the role of 20th and 21st thought and the significance of its influence on the visual arts. The course offers active integration of philosophy with contemporary practice and how artists produce hybrid methodologies within various fields of activity such as art, architecture and design within current national and international environments.
