What is the course about?

The consumption of art has become a significant question in art, sociology and even tourism. Works of art have been produced and consumed like any other everyday life commodities from the ancient times to the modern world, and the meaning of art has continuously been changing. Through studying the function of art museums, galleries, art auctions and the mass media, students will be shown the creation and re-creation of meanings in works of art, how they are understood and accepted by the public, and what cultural influences they may have generated in society at large.
