Unit 2 Philosophy students recently visited the NGV Ian Potter gallery to deepen understanding of aesthetic value – the final main topic for the year.
VSV Unit 2 Philosophy class members travelled from across the state for a day of meaningful discussions, questions and aesthetic explorations.
Such explorations included:
• Is beauty an important attribute of a work of art? If so, what kind of beauty?
• Is the purpose of art to enable insight into truth? If so, how?
• Do great works of art convey a new vision of the world? If so, is there a difference between art and propaganda or advertising?
New possibilities for understanding were achieved through group discussions and actively listening to the reasons, interpretations and experiences of others.
