Assigned to the Degree Course
The course aims at raising awareness of the complexity of contemporary art practices. The course is structured around topics of interest within the contemporary art history, as consistent as possible with conservation-restoration issues. The main goal to achieve through this course should be developing the ability to get in touch with the contemporary mindset as regards the Arts.
The course wil be held 2 days per week: one of them as a traditional lecture; the other one as a workshop. The former will be focused on topics of the contemporary art history, such as the trasnformation of the artist's role, of the public and of the art object; participatory art practices today, public art, the body in contemporary art. The second will use a "learning by design" methodology to develop specific collaborative projects together with the students.
Topics dealt with during the course regards the XXth and XIXth Century Arts. A previuos knowledge about modern art history is required.
