Hello, One of my students is comparing two animated films. She has done tremendous work, on the representation of female protagonist, male characters, and narratives, cultural context etc.. I read that two artworks by two artists was ok, now I see that that will limit my student, and the marking criteria specifically states this. Comments welcome.

Hi Lesa, it must be at least 3 artworks...try bringing in a third artwork from a different tradition, different medium

Hey Heather, one of my students has chosen an artwork created by a prisoner - she saw it at a recent exhibition of prisoner art in London. She is comparing it with two pieces by Boltanski ('Personnes' and 'El Caso'). The connections are great but can she use this non-professional artist prisoner as a source?

Hi JIm, how interesting! I think as long as she has plenty of bibliographical source material for Boltanski it should be fine. If in doubt, she could include another " outsider artist" with some published material.
