DESCRIPTION

Questions concerning the body and how it is imaged have become central to contemporary discussions about identity. It is a prominent theme in much recent art practice where the body appears not just in the form of visual representations but through its literal inclusion in performance and body art.


This unit will analyse the various ways in which the body has been depicted in Western visual culture, examining the changing social and cultural meanings that have been invested in the body both in the past and in contemporary society. It will cover such topics as: the portrait; the female and male nude; non-Western bodies; the techno body; the medicalised body; the body as political symbol and the sacred body.
This unit will be taught through a series of illustrated lectures that analyse both historical and recent examples of how the body has been imaged in Western art. Tutorials will provide the opportunity for a more in depth focus on the work of particular artists who have taken the body as a theme, examining their work in relation to the themes introduced in the lectures.

WEIGHT: 12.5%

ASSESSMENT:

2,500-word essay (50%), 1,500-word tutorial paper (30%), 500-word annotated bibliography (10%), tutorial presentation (10%).

TEACHING PATTERN: 1-hr lecture, 1-hr Art Forum, 1-hr tutorial weekly (13 wks)
