Course content

The course seeks to provide students with a reflective attitude towards the musicians role, through being able to see the connection between their own artistic activities and music and the role of art in society in a historical, cultural and aesthetic context. Further on the course will elucidate the relationships between artistic and cultural discourses and musical performance practice, and stimulate critical thinking around these themes.
