VA 526 Art and Anti-art Select Term:
Since Dada, and arguably since Futurism, artists have been drawn explicitly to oppose art and cultures and institutions of art. This course will consider why this has seemed desirable or imperative, how it seemed possible and what the significant consequences of anti-art positions and acts have been. Has anti-art been a failure, given that art continues to be made and talked or written about? Is failure without value or sense? The course will explore the recurrence of aspects of anti-art in later work and practice, and may consider precedents in earlier work.
