Presentation Transcript

  1. The arts

  2. Key concepts • Mimesis and anti-mimesis • Artistic license • Golden ratio • Perspective • Propaganda • Ethics and art • Punk music • Subjective and objective views of art • Universality of beauty • Monetary value of art

  3. Is our idea of beauty universal?

  4. In many ways this seems unlikely…

  5. “Designs for wallpaper are more finished than this seascape!” Louis Leroy, the critic for Charvari

  6. What do we think of: • Bartok? • Traditional Japanese folk music? • The Killers? • Carlos Vives? • Manchester music from the 1990s? …and how might people of a different perspective think of these things?

  7. On the other hand…

  8. The 1993 study carried out by Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid • "Maybe the blue landscape is genetically imprinted in us, that it's the paradise within, that we came from the blue landscape and we want it . . . We now completed polls in many countries - China, Kenya, Iceland, and so on - and the results are strikingly similar. Can you believe it? Kenya and Iceland - what can be more different in the whole fucking world - and both want blue landscapes . . . The blue landscape is what is really universal, maybe to all mankind."

  9. Objectivist views of art versus subjectivist views of art • To fully appreciate art, the audience must have a knowledge of art • Art can be judged as good and bad • Rules can be applied • Art can be interpreted in any way by its audience • Anything can be considered art • There are no formal rules for art

  10. Or is a different measure required to assess art?
