This subject provides an understanding of the context in which creative practitioners work and an introduction to contemporary art and design theory. Students will study the emergence and development of design and the creative industries as an area of professional practice, focussing on key points of change from the nineteenth century to the present. Selected key issues will be covered, including the influence of political, social and technological changes on practice historically and in the present. An independent research component provides an opportunity for in-depth investigation of an area of art and design relevant to each student, to introduce diverse research methodologies, and encompass practice-led and practice-as-research strategies and content. The subject gives emphasis to students situating their own research and reflective practice.
