CREATIVE FORMS OF ART CRITICISM AND WRITING
An Online Course by Node Center



**This course offers University credits. To opt for credits read this page**


In this Course we delve into experimental and hybrid forms of writing and art criticism. On a macro-level we will investigate how art criticism can open up to a bigger realm that goes beyond a particular artwork or exhibition, providing insight into ongoing tendencies and movements in contemporary culture. How do critics put the finger on the pulse of their times? On a micro-level we will also look for ways to expand art criticism's narrative into the poetic and the fictional. What happens when non fiction and fiction meet in art criticism?

We will experiment with the writing of art criticism not just to find new creative forms but for what it can contribute to the art world in a deeper way. The general aim of this course is to develop a better sense of your own personal interests, voice and style. Therefore an intensive engagement of the participant is required.

*Video conferences every Thursday at 7pm CET. Recordings will be available in case you miss a live session!

- Duration: May 9–30, 2019
- Application deadline: May 6, 2019
