Art and Experience (ARHT1001)
UNIT OF STUDY
Art and Experience focuses on the history of pagan, Christian and Islamic art and architecture in Western Europe and the Mediterranean region from classical antiquity to the early modern period. A key focus is on recognising the social, cultural, political and religious purposes an object or building was designed to serve, the range of meanings the work was intended to embody and how these changed across time. Historical analysis will be combined with discussions of different approaches to interpretation
