Media Aesthetics

The systematic examination of these fundamental aesthetic elements will provide students with an understanding about the importance of evaluating art within its historical and cultural contexts. Special attention will be given to film and video as art as they use the same aesthetic elements as all other art forms. In addition, students will be introduced to basic aesthetic theories and approaches and their principal adherents: objective (Plato and Aristotle), subjective (Hume), and realism and formalism theories.
