ART-311 Critical Theory & the Arts

This course surveys critical theories of the modern and contemporary periods and explores how these theories have been taken up and applied by art historians, artists, and critics. It additionally considers Christian critiques of critical theory (biblical, theological, philosophical) and its application within culture at large. Emphasis is placed on the analysis of existing artworks and generation of new artworks from a critical theoretical perspective, and on the critical examination of critical theory from a Christian faith perspective. Prerequisite: ART-131, ART-261, or ART-262
