Class Art, Culture and Communication

  • Presentation


    Through an introduction to sound-image and "audio-visual" relations, we will first consider cinema as an art of sound. We will also present a cross-thematic presentation of themes and issues where the instances of art, culture and communication intercept and interlace, with views and discussion of art documentaries about artists, and we will read and study critical texts on the work of these authors.
