Art History and Actuality / Non-European Arts (B3)

De erg

Professor: Toma Muteba Luntumbue

This course deals with the representations of the Other in Western art, iconography and museums, the relations between European historical avant-gardes and non-European arts (Sub-Saharan Africa, Oceania, Indian America), as well as the borrowings that have contributed to the renewal of Western arts’ aesthetic paradigms.

The course will also offer a critical survey of the specificity of artistic productions identified by cultural classifications such as contemporary African, Islamic, Brazilian, Chinese, African-American art within the larger field of the current artistic production, and will contextualize several issues related to globalization, post-colonialism and multiculturalism through the prism of contemporary artists and theorists.
