Power & persuasion: art as social commentary

by THINK Global School

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

This unit will explore the ideas of persuasion, media, and rights. The ways in which expectations and the establishment are questioned conceptually and visually will be explored through artwork that makes use of detournement and appropriation.

What is the artist’s role in or responsibility to society, and how do they (or should they) affect or incite change?

Artists and movements you will explore include Ai Weiwei, Barbara Kruger, Pop Art, as well as contemporary print advertising. You will do visual analysis on specific pieces as well as formal discussion of the concepts and oeuvres/movements. These analyses will inform your visual response to each. You will create an original piece of art informed by this visual research and media experimentation. Your piece will be based on the theme: “Consume, Consumer.”

This course was developed for 12 sessions over a 6 week duration.
