Why this blog...

This blog's dedicated to the vocabulary of AA318 - Art of the 21st Century Art Course from the Open one of the course's main texts ART in THEORY , 1900-2000 , Harrison and Wood it will have no pictures at all, allowing the LANGUAGE to be the dominant partner in the Art and/versues Language debate that makes up AA318.

To whet you appetite here are some examples of the debate:

AESTHETIC v COGNITIVE response to art -feel or think ?

FIGURATIVE v ABSTRACT IVE art - is that a body I see or just lines ?

APOLLONIAN v DIONYSIAN - who's right reason or emotion

Two images will be the benchmark this blog - one READYMADE Duchamp's Fountain. and one ASSISTED READYMADE - Bicycle Wheel .
