Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The technological development, globalization process and social shifts put into the question the traditional notions of art and its role. They also changed the definition of an image and perception. The questions what the image is or what it means to see demand quite different answer than a hundred years before. The lectures deal with both artworks like paintings and forms of popular culture, such as cinema, photography and digital media. The attention will be given to transformations of social and technological life which shaped the 20th and 21st century visual culture. Particular lectures will refer to the definition of an image in the photographic and digital era, the relations between the industrialisation, developement of the city, the urban life and the popular culture, the ideoligical impact on vision, the psychoanalitic interpretations of art, cinema and photography, art as a spectacle, and the questions of identity and self-awarness in regard to digital media and communication.
