À propos du cours

What is contemporary art? In this course, you’ll consider this question through more than 70 works of art made between 1980 and the present, with a focus on art from the past decade. You’ll hear directly from artists, architects, and designers from around the globe about their creative processes, materials, and inspiration. Five themes serve as your guide: Media from Television to the Internet, Territories & Transit, Materials & Making, Agency, and Power. You’ll look at 3-D–printed glass and fiber sculptures, performances in a factory and a museum, painted portraits—as well as those made with artificial intelligence—and interventions into television and video games. And much more, all drawn from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Come along as artists invite us into their studios, out into their neighborhoods, and to experiment with the materials they use. Not only will you develop a deeper understanding of how artists work today, you’ll also explore some of their many approaches to the pressing issues and questions of our time. By taking this course, you’ll gain confidence to look at contemporary art wherever you encounter it and make connections to your own life or creative practice....

Excellent, informative course, with much diversity. I laughed and smiled, felt awe and inspiration, cried and felt the pain and the beautiful defiance of pieces I might have never appreciated before.

Very interesting and easily consumable resources, lots of video, audio, and short text so it was very fun and accessible. They have a good diversity of artists across ethnicity, sex, and country.

El contenido tiene su parte muy interesante, pero no considero que vaya de acuerdo al titulo del curso, ya que jamás se responde a la pregunta sobre "What is contemporary art?" ni el contenido del curso plantea de forma clara una ruta para dar una respuesta a la pregunta, sobre todo para los que seguimos preguntándonos que es, como se define, como llegar a él, la mayoría de los trabajos son pobres por sí solos, sin el discurso en el que se sostienen las obras no sé en donde quedarían; claro que también hay excepciones y algunos eran trabajos más completos, se notaba la intencionalidad de crear, mas que de justificar algo realizado.

En lo personal me quito la necesidad de querer que me expliquen porque le llaman arte a esas creaciones y ojalá muchos de los autodenominados artistas tengan el valor de quitarse la necesidad de querernos convencer de que lo que hacen es arte, al final todo será subjetivo.

Siempre existirá el dilema del arte, el trasfondo en esto, es que lo más tangible está en el mercado que existe a su alrededor, y eso nos puede dar más respuestas que los millones de palabras utilizadas en las explicaciones de obras de arte contemporáneo a lo largo del tiempo.

Entonces, ¿cual sería el titulo que recomendaría?:

"The World Of Contemporary Art!"

​This is an interesting course. It presents a plethora of artists, both renowned and less famous, to see. The thing is that you only get a peek of many themes and artists, without delving deeper into anything. The historical context given for the works is brief, but enough. Also, there are some external links for further studying. There are no specific methodologies or theoritical tools behind the course, so it feels more like a museum tour with a very good guide explaining to you, rather than a real study on contemporary art.

S​o, I guess it depends on your expectations and background. If you're a curious person wanting to get a general picture of contemporary art, it is perfectly good for you. Also it might be good if you're an art student looking to broaden your horizons. But if you are someone who is studying or working in art theory, it probably won't cut it.

El arte contemporaneo es un conjunto de ideas que partimos de ellas para formar un todo o algo logico e interesante en este mundo cambiante, tecnologia, colores, formas y texturas creando un objeto con un objetivo que llame la atencion y nos atrape en su voragine novedosa y creativa!

Le cours a répondu en partie seulement à mes questions. J'ai trouvé les vidéos et témoignages de certains artistes très intéressants. J'ai apprécié les quizz. Cependant, je me demande si j'aurais appris davantage via un documentaire sur l'art disponible sur Youtube ou Netflix

Buenos ejemplos, te da un panorama general de lo que se está haciendo, pero deja de lado los antecedentes y bases teóricas que son necesarios para entender el arte contemporáneo como movimiento artístico.

I like what's in the course, but I don't like the fact that they don't censor the swear words, and there are dirty terms in here.
