For this project, you need to understand the difference between two new words:
Aesthetic: related to visual appearance or beauty Conceptual: related to the thinking, or ideas
For example, an aesthetician's job is to make people beautiful (apply makeup, style hair, do manicures/pedicures, etc.). A philosopher does conceptual work; he works with ideas. ______________________________________________________________ FIRST:
Plug in your headphones… and watch the video called “All You Need to Know about Conceptual Art”, below. After you are done, answer the questions about the video, below it.
Cut and paste these questions into a Word Document, and answer them all. Save the document and then print it out (and hand it in) or email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. What, according to the video, is the “single biggest art idea of the 20th century”?
2. Do you think that the artist Marcel Duchamp was a great artistic revolutionary? Or just an ingenious prankster trying to pull a “fast one” on the art world?
