Cursusdoelen
After successful completion of this course, the student has:
  • knowledge and understanding of the art and cultural history and theory of the senses, including the visual sense
  • knowledge and understanding of art and performance as a potential locus for sensory experiment
  • critical awareness about the commodification of the senses
  • a skills set enabling them to think, act and communicate at an academic level and in line with academic standards of conduct ('academic integrity').
After completing the course, students will be able to:
  • explore a broad theoretical field (sensory history and theory) and critically evaluate different interpretations of issues having to do with the history and theory of the senses and formulate their own viewpoint;
  • work in accordance with academic standards.
 
 
Inhoud
In the course, we question Western ocularcentrism and the modernist segmentation of our sensory functions and sensorial experiences. Students are familiarized with philosophical, artistic and scientific ideas that questions the supremacy of the eye, the modernist hierarchy of the senses and the division of our sensory functions. Through lectures, guest lectures, museum visits, experiments, discussions and the intensive study of texts students will learn to be more attentive to how our sensorium functions. They will learn to analyse art, film, fashion, design, consumer goods, environments… from a multisensorial perspective and they will learn to take the interrelations that exists between the different senses into account in their scientific work.
