Course for the doctoral students. Open for also for MA students.
ELO-L0008, (L01) Dialogues with X: Art, Film and Theory Workshop (2 cr).
Responsible teachers: Susanna Helke & Harri Laakso
What happens when a philosopher encounters an artwork? During the course Dialogues with X: Art, Film and Theory Workshop (2 cr) we will explore, through in-depth readings of selected texts, what happens at the intersection of a philosophical text and a contemporary artwork. The emphasis is in cinema and media art. How can the materiality of an artwork be translated into the language of philosophy? What happens in that encounter? What is encountered? The course consists of reading selected texts, viewing films and artworks discussed in the reading materials, and lectures offered by visiting experts. How does artistic research – at the intersection of art and theory – relate to the encounters that occur between philosophy and art?
