Stuart Hall: “Encoding / Decoding”
The Dominant (excepted but questioned/suspicious) and the Hegemonic (exceptance/believe it for what it is): Negotiated and the Oppositional.
What do we feel about the work and then what’s around the work? – Critical interventions.
Picking a case study:
How it’s perceived and taken in by the general public – reaction e.g. teachers banning collections such as the Garbage Kids.
Material used for artwork/sources researched to develop – make the work have an understanding. Critical understanding – The artist themselves e.g. could be a performance piece. – Experience – documenting places you’ve been – languages/ideas.
Comic strips- The Print being the medium? – Format/photography/screen all come as big potential examples as the medium specificity too.
