Art can move us and challenge our views. At a time where cultural sensitivity and environmental responsibility are central to our lives, the contribution of socially motivated artists is pivotal. This course will give you a critical overview of the role of art, artists and art institutions in challenging and shaping the beliefs of our society as well as ethical considerations in art.
You will learn about ethical issues in art, such as cultural appropriation, gender and the gaze, ethnicity and environmental and ecological concerns. You will contextualise these issues by learning about the history of art and social change and the ethical responsibility of artists.
You will explore these themes through personal research assignments on different types of ethics in art, including power relations and environmental concerns. Each week you will present your research and gain feedback from your tutor and peers. Through these tasks you will develop an understanding of critical research and how to conduct it.

You can able to apply this knowledge and implement an ethical framework in your own art or within an art organisations.
