» For Friday 16-Jan
- Read Droitcour, “Why I Hate Post-Internet Art” (2014) blog entry
- (also check out the comments responding to the entry)
- By end of class time Friday, post comment below
(brief, 1–2 sentences; responding to reading and/or discussing with classmates)
— discussion prompts, responding to reading and each other; any (not all!) of these topics, along with other points of interest for you:
- Droitcour’s main argument? discussion about art itself or the discourse (the way it is described/talked-about)?
- any specific art-discipline writing? most thought-provoking point or sentence? how distinguished as a “blog entry” vs. a “scholarly article”? (and does this matter?)
- what does the post do or accomplish or generate? (check out the comments; what are responders reacting to?) does this get you thinking (newly) about art + technology connection? (if so: implications? if not: is this debate relevant to artists?)
- Bonus / Optional check out Droitcour’s article “The Perils of Post-Internet Art” in Art in America magazine (30-Oct 2014)
- Not to compare/contrast, but we read a blog entry by Droitcour (a curator and critic) — which he cites in his article. what do you think of the distinct writings in terms of publication, purpose/message, audience, impact (note the comments on the magazine article versus blog!)…?
