Exit Through the Gift Shop - What is street art?
Banksy says that street art is valid as any type of art
Exit Through the Gift Shop - Why is street art more effective than traditional art?
It delivers the message to more people - anyone can see it in the streets, not like others where you must go to a museum. By doing it in the streets, you are refusing that an institution will be able to judge it or accredit it as art
Exit Through the Gift Shop - What is a main point of street art?
Make it political, make it have meaning, make it for everyone to see
Exit Through the Gift Shop - Why doesn't Banksy think Thierry is a true artist?
Theirry does not make art that is original
Exit Through the Gift Shop - How does the form of the film relate to its content?
It shows the discrepancies between authenticity, entertainment and business
Blow up - What is the film mainly about?
The film is mainly about examining the relationship between individuals and reality and the interrelationship between truth, reality and appearance
Blow up - Give an example of a binary opposition seen in the film
In the first scene, we see the despair of these living in the shelter and then also the "clowns" running in the street
Blow up - What is the protagonist mainly interested in? What does he not care about?
Main protagonist is a photographer who has no interest in the social or political aspects of his work, only interesting in its aesthetic/economic value
Blow up - Where in the film is it clear that the protagonist is oblivious to historical, social and political issues
When the protagonist is in the antique shop, this highlights him and his generation's (represented by the young woman who owns the shop) disinterest in anything that does not concern aesthetics or that does not have economic value. Seen again in the scene where he fights for the guitar but it becomes insignificant once he leaves the club
Blow up - Explain how the final scene has been interpreted by critics, and compare this to how Peter Brunette sees it
Some critics have interpreted the ending as a statement that reality has no meaning. Rather, as Peter Brunette points out, there is no inherent immutable fixed meaning but only socially and this historically determined meanings. At the end of the film, by picking up the tennis ball, the protagonist is validating its existence which becomes real with his "participation" in the action. Antonioni seems to be saying that anything can be real as long as a group experiences it as such - once the protagonist accepts the authority of the group "playing" tennis, he can see, pick up, and throw back the ball into the tennis court
Describe the "struggle of interpretation"
One might conclude that the 'struggle of interpretation' is not a struggle that is to be decided, but a dialectical process that has to be performed in every act of reading. The reader can choose between two interpretive attitudes: that of the hermeneutic detective, or the hermetic spy. Interpretation and over-interpretation are two possible ways of adopting hypotheses; two different strategies of abduction, which produce different results. The careful hermeneutic abduction on one hand, the daring hermetic abduction on the other. The 'critical pin point' of reading and understanding is the discovery that the reader is compelled to be responsible, because they are condemned to have interpretive freedom, but the question remains: should there be a limit to that freedom?
What does the prof say to the question: Should there be a limit to interpretive freedom?
Prof says it depends on the intentionality, if it is an attack (racism, sexism etc.), then there absolutely should be a limit on this freedom. One's intentionality is an important part of communication, without intentionality communication will die, but there is no space for any gender bias etc.
Describe the "Art and the Archeologist"
The value placed on objects today and in the recent past has often led to destruction of archaeological sites around the world. This is seen as less important than the aesthetic value of the objects, which is often imposed on the objects since originally they had no aesthetic value, just a practical one. This is seen often with works of art from ancient Greece. This has caused art from other areas to be seen as less worthy (become marginalized). What brings up the value of art is being able to attribute it to some sort of specific artist or at least a "school" - this has become linked to giving value to the objects. If an object is not recognized, it is seen as inferior quality. In fact, if the artist or school can be identified, there is even a linguistic distinction. For example, vase (if it can be classified) and pot (if no artist or school can be identified)
