Explain why context is important to looking and thinking critically about a visual text
Visual texts are often reflections of their current context, whether it be social, political or environmental. The context of a visual text is key to achieving a deeper, more enhanced comprehension. It is also key to critical thinking as it allows you to focus and acknowledge significant details. Both looking and thinking critically require active consideration and engagement with the visual text, without context it’s hard to pinpoint the true meaning and purpose of it.
