John Berger’s Ways of Seeing

Great convo today re: seeing, context, technology and reproduction!  If you want to see more of John Berger’s series, Ways of seeing, watch it here: episode 1, episode 2, episode 3, and episode 4

For homework for next week, please go to one of the shows on campus (or elsewhere if you get out of town!) and look at the work while being hyper aware of the context in which you are looking and experiencing the art. Please write 2-3 paragraphs speaking to this consciousness of looking, in ways Berger pointed out and that we spoke about in class. Please have these to turn in on Wednesday.
