Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Art is based on a surplus of order. It establishes networks of sameness and through a heightened use of formal equivalence produces meaning. Patterns and schemata can become stale, however, and may lose their poignancy and aesthetic appeal. This seminar looks at some of the strategies counterbalancing aesthetic patterning, i.e. at deviation, defamiliarisation and ostranenie, and explores their aesthetic and ideological potential.
