PG Diploma in Critical Theory, Aesthetics, and Practice (CTAP)

Course Description

JPM’s year-long, postgraduate diploma/certificate course in Critical Theory, Aesthetics, and Practice (CTAP) provides students a rigorous engagement with art history and criticism, aesthetics, and critical theory. The second of iteration of CTAP, the course will include some old and some new scholars teaching in each of these fields, ensuring that they account for fresh research and publications that have emerged over the past year.

 

The course begins with sessions on aesthetics in Western philosophy, with careful attention to Plato, Kant, Nietzsche, and Danto; we then move to an analysis of how the discipline of art history and the practice of art criticism emerged and transformed over time. Students survey the field of art history and criticism in South Asia in relation to developments in the West.

 

The second section of CTAP is devoted to the foundations of critical theory, with close readings of Marx, Freud, and Lacan. Having a solid theoretical footing, students come equipped, in the third section, to assess the work of seminal critical theorists of art, aesthetics, and visual and popular culture, including the Frankfurt School (Benjamin and Adorno), structuralism (Barthes), post-structuralism (Foucault), as well as contemporary critics of postmodernism (Jameson and Geeta Kapur).

 

The course’s fourth and final section puts theory into direct engagement with curatorial and art practices, at times inviting curators and artists to bring their studios, galleries, and museums to the classroom. In this final component, students will gain a window onto ‘the creative process’ through the oeuvres of select painters and architects, as well as video, performance, sound, and digital artists.

 

CTAP brings the very best scholars and practitioners from our city, India, Europe, and the Americas, those experienced in pedagogy that tacks between lecture, discussion, and close reading and seeing. Moreover, for students who wish to pursue aspects of the course more intensely, CTAP complements JPM’s Postgraduate Diploma/Certificate course in Theoretical Foundations, which will offer in-depth seminars on Orientalism, Civil War, The Emergence of Capitalism, Marx, Interpretive Methods, and Psychoanalysis.

 

CTAP students are introduced to ideas and thoughts that will allow them to develop and evolve their own academic research, writing, and professional interests in the visual arts world imaginatively and critically. To receive a Postgraduate Diploma in CTAP from JPM, students must attend at least 75% of classes and successfully complete two short essays and a final thesis. To receive a Postgraduate Certificate in CTAP from JPM students must attend at least 75% of classes. Registration in JPM Write, a course on writing style designed and taught by Jnanapravaha’s Academic Director, Rohit Goel, is included in the CTAP Diploma fee, although students who opt for the CTAP Certificate are eligible to participate in JPM Write for an additional fee.
