what is art and other lectures

this is for you. this is the powerpoint of the first set of lectures. please note that the institutional theory in art is the role of the institution on defining what is art and what is not art, what is good art and what is bad art. this is of course the simplistic view on things. the institution holds the power on the “artifactualizing” of the object because they give the “status of candidate for appreciation.” for example, marcel duchamp’s the fountain, placing an ordinary object, such as a urinal, in an insitution for the arts, such as the museum.

Dear Baby, if you are anything like me, patience is not one of your virtues. But you need to stay put for a couple of weeks. We're gonna put our feet up and take it easy. Keep on dancing, just don't push down. Lol. For now, we had a great dinner at our favorite restaurant. Xoxo. #dinner #moment #baby Department baby shower. And we forgot to take more photos, we're missing Louise and Yayo! It was fun and I am grateful. Getting there, whew. #babyshower #artstud #das Baby shower! We've been friends for more than two decades, incredible. Love you girls! #babyshower #highschool We're starting to build the baby library, challenging for sure. We want a mix of classics, contemporary, and adventures. Suggestions are most welcome, so are gifts. Though I realized that screening baby books is not easy. And buying them is not cheap, lol. But it is incredibly fun. I hope she gains the love of reading that will open up worlds and lives beyond her own. #books #readings Friday's with Mom and Ian. She came to see the new place. #lunch #mom The butter to my bread, the breath to my life. Happy birthday #gamerchef! We shall taste the world together! #birthday
