ART-253 Art & Death


UQ (Ultimate Questions)
This course will explore the visual expressions of death and dying, and the use of art in its rituals. While a common cultural taboo, death also brings with it a rich symbolic language, making it a point of convergence for a wide range of cultural, political, religious, social values, and fears. From funerary arts and architecture, to collective memory, to representations of the “good death” of national heroes, this class will take a wide thematic look at death as an artistic topic. The topics discussed in this class will rotate each semester. 4 credits
