Lernziele / Kompetenzen
  • Become familiar with and understand the structures, institutions, power vectors, and discourses that shape the current art field, and their historical backgrounds
InhalteAfter the first semester's introductory context module focused on the “artist” and the ideas and images associated with it, the focus in the second semester shifts to the art field in which art circulates, is exhibited, distributed, traded, collected, discussed and negotiated. The module looks at the structures, institutions, power vectors and discourses that shape the art field and their historical backgrounds, but also how artists can relate to them.

This module provides an overview of the structures, institutions, and discourses that shape the art world today.
