Spotlight on a course: Art and Performance Research within and across the Humanities.
This core module will introduce you to the history of the diverse Art Studies disciplines represented in this Master's, and will make you familiar with current issues and practices of academic research in these fields. Particular attention will be given to theories that embrace the different art forms such as body/gender, mediality and materiality, the afterlife of arts, aesthetic experience, spectatorship and curatorship. In each session, one or two experts will discuss specific topics and provide an example of their own research.
