Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The course provides a foundation in core concepts of sociological theory in relation to cultural processes and in particular, artistic and cultural production processes. While the theoretical contributions of major sociological thinkers such as Benjamin, Adorno, Bourdieu, Hall and Becker are examined, they are situated within the context of current cultural and artistic debates and transformations in the arts and creative industries.
Our central questions will focus on how art and culture are conceptualised in sociological theory, how the roles of the artists and cultural intermediaries are defined and how society contributed to the appearance of certain art forms and forms of cultural expression.
