This is a compulsory subject that is part of Contexts of Art Practices.
The purpose of this module is to lay out the bases so that the students can learn, understand and actively question the role of artistic practices in society, and the role of the artist as creator and as a worker. The course consists of a series of seminars in which students will get to know first-hand the work of invited artists, active agents in the local and international context, whose practices deploy, using very diverse media and languages, a wide range of possibilities in the intersection of art with science and technology, the social sciences and the humanities. The first block of seminars examines from a thematic perspective the way this intersection develops by analyzing how artistic practice enables a specific approach to discourse and representation in each of these areas.
Students will be able to observe how each singular conception of the role of art and the artist, linked to specific work contexts, is reflected in the ways of working (researching, making, presenting). In the context of the subject students will receive work proposals and will need to carry out activities such as case studies, interviews, readings, exposition and debate on themes, reviews and other written work, as well as practical work with other formats and media to explore different aspects of the discipline.
