Students have upon successful completion of the course unit:
- knowledge of some important artists and artworks, and the ability to position them within a (social, political, art historical) context;
- knowledge of some art movements and art forms, and are able to characterize them;
- some knowledge of: art historical terminology, and correct use of it; diversity of art historical approaches; ways in which art historical knowledge is applied/present in the museum context.
In this course unit the following competences are developed:
- (comparative) analyses of sources (artworks and literature);
- giving a clear and coherent oral presentation, debate about a subject matter with a group of peers, and review peers;
- general academic skills (critical reading, thinking, communicating and describing) and course specific skills (knowledge of terms, reading and interpreting of sources as well as the ability to relate these sources to discussed artworks and literature).
Omschrijving This course focuses on developments the visual arts went through from 1914 until the '80s. The course examines the paths taken by the arts through surrealism, abstract expressionism, pop art, minimal art, conceptual art, and other currents still. Students will become aware of the fact that during these developments, dominant artistic epicentres (as Paris and New York) are fragmented and multiplied, and that painting and sculpture are accompanied by other art forms, such as photography, participatory art and installation art.
