The course includes of the professional BA program in Cultural administration part A,
                     1,3,4 semester
Course compiled by: Svetlana Hajenko, MA humanitarian art sciences

Course abstract
    A professional who is engaged in the project maintenance to a certain extend maintains also
the cultural politics, therefore the aim of the course is to bring up a well informed person
interested in the art problems. Today visual art is environment-oriented (in terms- interior art),
which can be explained with the fact that environment is the continuation of a person- soul, body,
things, home, city, state.
    Within the course it is planned to get the students acquianted with the 20th century art trends
via the perspective of everyday experience and collage (clip-form) thinking. Therefore the
traditional course is divided into several blocks- art in the interior and art in the city. As far as
modern European art science is not divided into the easel art and decorative art (it all is close to
stenography), there is also a distinguished bloch which deals with the avant-garde and technogen
art perception peculiarities. The parallel analysis of the 20th century Latvian and European art is
stressed. The principle of the tutoring is a tought contact with the original art works (art is
comprehended only via contact), therefore parallel to the theoreticalcourses there are also
“business” courses- “Analysis of the works of art”, “Basics of the gallery functiobning”, etc.

Aims of the course.
   1) To develop the students’ analytical thinking.
   2) To bring up and develop the students’ comprehension of art, idea of the art taste and style.
   3) To generalize, broaden and improve the students’ knowledge acquired in other courses.
