Uitgebreide vaknaam Evaluating the Arts
Leerdoelen To gain a broad understanding of the contemporary arts criticism field; To learn to distinguish between various froms of criticism from professional journalistic reviews to less traditional and increasinly inter-mediated forms of criticism from the online blog to the video essay; To be able to craft and compose one own's unique art criticism inspired by various models examined within the course.
Omschrijving This course looks directly to the contemporary and recent historical field of arts criticism. Here students examine both respected and prolific arts critics in the fields of journalism and professional arts worlds with subjects taken literature, film, music and theater criticism. By reading both shorter exposés such as the record or concert review to the film and theater performance review, students begin to recognize the pithy, poetic, yet functional language of arts criticism intended for a broader public. In the second half of this course, students undertake their own arts criticism project which may take the form of an online blog reviewing various artistic examples from the student's chosen arts discipline such as music, film, theatre, visual art, or literature or may take the form of a video review channel composed of a set of video reviews that cohere in style, content, and negotiation of one's own personal critical voice.
