Tate Modern - I will be teaching the course 'Seven Ways of Thinking About Art' on 7 consecutive Monday evenings from 19th October until 30th November. Booking required.
The course explores the philosophical basis of our attempts to understand works of art. Topics covered include the question of whether works of art are simply catalysts to purely subjective responses, the relevance of an artist's intentions, a work’s historical context, its originality, and its context within the gallery.
Participants have the opportunity to explore a range of positions from a theoretical perspective and to test their application against particular works of art in the gallery.
Booking will open in September. All booking is via the Tate Modern booking office.
In the Spring I will begin the cycle of three 6-session courses on Aesthetics at Tate Modern Classic Aesthetics, Modern Aesthetics and Contemporary Aesthetics.
