The main objective of the Arts and Media course at Osaka University is to advance theoretical studies in areas such as media literacy that exceed the bounds of existing art theories and are closely linked to social realities, while also giving practical training to develop computer skills to process visual data.
The second component is to promote multi-faceted research into cultural policy-making and arts planning. Instead of looking at painting, drama, cinema, and literature as separate entities, the cultural and social functions of these artistic creations are explored by focusing on how they are produced and appreciated. Rather than analysis and interpretation of each artistic work, this component takes as its central issues policies and systems behind the publication, exhibiting or staging of works, and the dynamic relations between artistic works and their audiences.
