FILM/VIDEO/INTERDISIPLINARY Art 973, What Is/Isn’t Art?

What are/aren’t we talking about when we talk about art? For most modernists the story of modern art is that of the distillation and differentiation of mediums; for postmodernists the main events concern the diversification and miscegenation of means and formats. In six sessions that combine lectures by the seminar leader, outside reading, and group discussion, this class both mixes it up and sorts it out with a view to clarifying basic questions about what painting is and isn’t, or rather about what it once was and what it has become. The seminar is primarily open to M.F.A. students, but others who are interested may apply and will be admitted as space permits.
