Comics vs. Art


Sam Miller facilitated the discussion on Comics vs. Art. The production consumption cycle was discussed first. The class was concerned with the definition of art and mass production. Controversy surrounding art also involved the notion of intent and whether the creation was intended as art or whether it was coincidental or accidental. The audience was another topic of discussion. Depending on what audience the comics were targeted at had an impact on how the art was viewed and also how it was consumed. The class tried to think of comics as art in comparison to other objects that aren’t traditionally viewed as art. Seen through this light notions of mass production and availability of the product presently, had an impact not only on value but also how it was accepted as art.
