Visual and Material Culture: Course

Artists Studying Artists

Zehavi Ohad, Dr., Semester 1, Sunday, 12:30-14:00
The final goal of this MFA seminar is to produce short research papers on various issues in contemporary art. By reading together some key texts regarding art critique and analysis we will argue for and against interpretation of art works, examine the relationship between art works and the cultural field in which they are produced, question the importance of the artist's intent for appreciating the work of art and assess the degree of freedom exhibition visitors possess. From this we will proceed, with close and continuous guidance, to writing individual research papers on concrete issues in the current art world
