This minor subject is to link the traditional contents of the subject with current perspectives in a profitable manner. It aims to teach knowledge of the eras, types and styles of Western art across their entire spectrum and to instruct in independent analysis of esthetic phenomena. Basic competences in the area of visuality and image history are taught to permit argumentative and critical statements on general imagery and visual arts issues of the past and present. The basic training in Art History covers the period from Antiquity and the Middle Ages to the Modern Era and the present. A complementary module intensifies knowledge of art theory and methodology, while the “Art in Context” module enables students to get to know original works of art on-site. The close cooperation with the Siegen Museum of Contemporary Art, which enjoys an outstanding reputation nationwide for presenting 20th and 21st century art, warrants particular emphasis here. A module on art didactics permits further specialization of practical issues regarding museum and exhibition didactics.
