University of Brighton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Is politics as much a war of images as a struggle between competing interests? How is art complicit in manipulating appearances to frame our view of the world? These are just two of the questions you’ll examine on this course combining three disciplines: history of art and design, the politics of art, and philosophical aesthetics. You will critically engage with artistic, political and philosophical ideas developed by individual thinkers and schools of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, applying these to real-world problems. You will develop your own understanding of how art and art making intersect with political movements. Studying at Brighton, you’ll be immersed in a lively culture of artistic practice, exhibition and critique – and our active student community is diverse and friendly.
