2011/12 fall _ discourses of contemporary art

short description

The objective of the seminar is to offer an overview of the major phenomena, trends and issues of contemporary art based on various subjects in each semester. During the course a special emphasis will be placed on the East European region, in the form of seminars, presentations held by invited lecturers, field trips to museums, institutions and artist studios, excursions. The course primarily targeting the Erasmus students will be open at the same time to the students of the Intermedia and Curatorial Studies department. While offering an insight into the Hungarian contemporary art scene, one of the course’s main intentions is to foster personal contacts and cultural interactions between local and foreign students in the hope of an emerging intercultural dialogue.
