DES104 Art, Design and Visual Culture


In this course you will learn how contemporary image-making involves both originality and re-invention, by exploring the work of significant artists and designers, past and present. The course will explore how current visual practice is situated within a continuum of image-making, by examining major art and design movements, concepts and themes that have shaped the way that we use and interpret images today. You will learn how artists and designers respond to the social and political context in which they work, and build your understanding of differing approaches to visual communication.
