Course Description:

This discussion course examines the fraught relationship between art and ethics, particularly in relation to public art and the display of art. It will examine the ethics of the making of art through issues such as whether the character, actions and beliefs of an artist should impact on the assessment of their work or how we can appreciate art which promotes ideas or ideologies we find ethically unacceptable. It also considers the ethics around issues of attribution and the extent to which those who are contributors to artistic creation are recognised.
