ARTH 63.71 Art & Money

This course will cast a critical eye on the commercial mechanisms of the contemporary art world encompassing auction houses, private galleries, museums, art schools, art fairs, biennales and magazines.  How is commercial value produced in the art market, and what does it have to do with the critical or symbolic value assigned to artworks in the art world more generally?  In addressing this question we will examine the changing function of artistic production within a knowledge or experience-based economy. At the same time, this course will also offer students a critical framework for analyzing the display, marketing and consumption of artworks in a global economy.
