Brief description
The module deals with British, European and American Art from the 1970s to the present and concentrates on comtemporary concerns with revival, revision and historical styles. The module deals with art as objects resulting from a technical, styalistic and imaginative process, as repositories of value-systems or idealogy and as the subject of issue and debate. It examines and compares ways in which contemporary art is dicussed and written about.
