The main focus of this course will be in contemporary art with special emphasis in public art. Students will carry out research as integral part of each of the given, assignments. They will receive constant assessment from the instructors and from their peers, students will be encouraged to take risks experimenting with art expressions and techniques that they haven’t used before. Students might find this process difficult, although they will receive personal assessment from the instructors and meetings out of class hours can be arranged if necessary.
Students will be asked to carry out research with focus on theory, production and society as the three main components of their analysis. From those three elements a number of sub-subjects will emerge, each of which will address a particular aspect related to art. This structure will help students to understand art within a larger context, and will give them a basic layout that they could apply to their own development in the course and artistic career.
