"BAD ART" (VLPA, I&S) WHILE BAD ART IS COMMONLY ASSUMED TO BE SIMPLY ART LACKING ARTISTIC SKILL AND COMPLEXITY, THIS COURSE WILL APPROACH BAD ART AS SOMETHING MORE THAN A VALUE SYSTEM.

UNAPPRECIATED ARTWORKS IN ONE ERA, MAY, GIVEN THE RIGHT SET OF ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL CIRCUMSTANCES, BECOME CELEBRATED AND HIGHLY VALUED IN ANOTHER PERIOD.
