Critical Practices 3A FSA321

Hobart, Launceston


This unit is designed to extend your understanding and application of key artistic and cultural debates and modes of practice in relation to your own creative, critical practice. It will be taught through a series of presentations, seminars and workshops.

You will be set tasks that require you to search and collect relevant cultural material to further develop your critical analysis and creative production. You will also undertake some practical tasks that extend this contextual research.

You will be presented with opportunities to initiate critical discussion with your peers in order to bring together thinking from a variety of sources and to reflect on and evaluate propositions, concepts and events in historical and contemporary contexts. Through reading, discussion and writing you will explore the contexts in which you wish to situate your creative projects.
