About the course
Conceptual art raises several interesting philosophical questions, including "How should we experience conceptual art?", "What is the ontological status of conceptual artworks?", and "Is it possible to define conceptual art in the same terms as other art?". The main aim of the course is to yield insight into the role of ideas in conceptual art and to examine both if the philosophical claim that ideas have a role in art is viable its own right and, if so, whether this role is unique to conceptual art. Is all art, to some extent at least, conceptual? What exactly do we mean by "idea" in relation to art in general and conceptual art in particular?
