Introducing Art Theory

The course aims at providing basic theoretical knowledge, deeply rooted in the western philosophical tradition, for analyzing especially contemporary forms of art where the idea, the concept, becomes the most important thing of the artwork. The course also includes an introduction to the basic contemporary debate in art theory, both analytical and continental tradition.
