Brief course description
The course gives the student an introduction to practical and theoretical knowledge about facilitating the public’s encounter with art and presenting art projects in public space. Theories of communication are used, and the teaching takes place parallel to the student working on independent artistic work (this work can be done individually or as part of a group project). The course emphasizes the need to incorporate such communication as part of developing an art project. It contributes to developing knowledge about contexts and the public.
The course’s learning outcomes
On completion of the course, the student will:
- be able to identify, analyse and evaluate artistic, aesthetic and ethical issues related to his/her own artistic practice
- be able to use suitable methods and approaches borrowed from alreadyexisting artistic practices in order to articulate his/her own focus and field of interest
- have basic competence to contextualize and describe his/her own artistic practice
