THE DEVELOPMENT OF STUDIES IN ARTS AT UNIVERSITIES AND THE ADDRESSING TOWARDS OPEN TRAINING MODELS

XXI century society, often defined as the knowledge society, has access to technological tools that facilitate interpersonal relations and educational content. If autonomy were previously defined as isolated cause-tool-effect, and the leadership was based in technical innovation, today the ideas of relationships between individuals has recovered its nature. This aspect predominates in visual culture and is spreading inexorably on current artistic expressions. The artist’s loss of autonomy and the reconciliation of the work of art with the object-subject-user that perceives or takes part of it has been a turning point that will be discussed in this article. In this paper, we introduce these issues to contextualize the development of arts studies in the Spanish universities with open training models. We refer not only to relations with the periphery but to the scientific-experimental connections that from other sources pose problems very differently that are common to the contemporary perception of the social and human relationships.
