Communication, Art and Design

1st SEMESTER / COURSE: PUBLIC RELATIONS STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT / OPTIONAL

The ubiquity of digital networks, the expansion of social media and the dissolution of the frontiers between “elite culture” and “popular culture” give shape to a complex encounter between communication, art and design in the contemporary experience. In fact, relations between art and design have a long history in the course of the 20th and 21st centuries that follow the closer relationship between communication, media and technology. The interface between art and design is rooted in the late 19th century, namely in the work of the English critic John Ruskin, and in the avant-garde movements of the early 20th century, such as Constructivism and Bauhaus, which promoted a new form of creative practice where the traditional frontiers between disciplines were re-evaluated. Presently, in the context of the new digital media, we are facing a deepening of this historic dialogue between art and design through the expansion of a common territory of practices, languages and critical discourses.
