Lo-Fi Aesthetics
Spring 2024
Taught By: Zed Adams
Section: A

CRN: 14628

Credits: 4

Since (at least) the 1980s, it has become increasingly common for artists to eschew traditional standards of professionalism and intentionally incorporate features such as distortion and disharmony into their artworks. What, exactly, are we doing when we make and appreciate such art, and how does it relate to more traditional conceptions of artistic value? In this seminar, we will use lo-fi artworks as a test case for traditional philosophical theories of art and, in the process, work together to develop our own theory of lo-fi aesthetics.
