Contemporary visual communication is grounded in a history of art and design and this course demonstrates ways in which image-making today both draws on, and breaks with, visual traditions of the past. The course investigates how contemporary visual practice is situated within a broader history of image-making by examining various significant art and design movements, concepts and themes which have shaped the way that we use and interpret images. The course also considers differing approaches to visual representation in the context of wider social, political and historical environments. By investigating various conceptual and practical approaches to art and design, you will increase your own design vocabulary and capacity for visual literacy and communication.
