Looking at different works of art, this course investigates the problems of the fundamental human impulse to interpret art as a mode of social or political resistance to power as compared to the apolitical enjoyment of the aesthetics of art as such. It aims to analyze our present postmodern experience of art in which the art consumer is radically divided between possible erotics of art and a violent return to the tradition of interpretation.

That much is certain. How to enjoy watching films, however, has become an increasingly important question. The usually half-empty cinema theatres in Hong Kong attest for it.
