ANTH7004 - Anthropology of Art and Design
The course is aimed at those who wish to deepen their understanding of art in visual culture. It intends to capture the role of art and performance in anthropological theory and methodology and introduce students to questions that are at the core of an interdisciplinary debate about artefactual form, image and materiality. It will reflect on what anthropology has to say about how mere artefacts come to have agency in culture and society by drawing on case studies that range from modernism to the arts that have conventionally been studied by Anthropology.
