Learning outcomes In this CU it is intended that the student acquires in-depth knowledge in the field of individual expression, understanding it as an integral part of historical, sociological, anthropological and artistic phenomena that developed over the 20th and 21st centuries, in order to understand its scope and complexity, as well as which identity nuances it currently assumes in contemporary society, particularly capitalist and consumerist. It aims to make the student understand the concepts of fashion as transversal communicative phenomena in a global society, as well as as key elements for sustainable economic-environmental development. It aims to provide the student with the concepts and mediums that contemporary art assumes, in an interdisciplinary perspective, as well as explaining the deep relationship between art and individual imagination.
