Post-Style:  Simulacra and Appropriation

class 12 (nov. 20)


Modern art:  art that undermined the ideal of mimetic representation; art that emphasized choice over technique.

Questions:

  • What is an image?
  • What happens when the image is distanced or divorce from what it depicts?
  • Is appropriation critical?
  • What is the role of the artist within the context of appropriation and simulation?
