INTL 1590 - Africa-Art of a Continent


African images and ideas from the distant past to the post-modern present will challenge your imagination as we examine ‘how we look at’ and ‘how we see’ African art. Our use of a thematic approach alows for an exploration of ideas that cut across many cultural zones, while case studies provide a more complex view of artworks, aesthetics and their communicative and symbolic functions within specific societies-today and in the past. We will use films, selected readings and lecture to approach (selectively) the rich and duverse artistic heritage of the vast continent of Africa.
