L’arte di guardare

La mission di un corso di art & humanities:

Trasformare gli studenti affinché non guardino mai più qualcosa allo stesso modo.

Our most fundamental understanding of a “picture” as a flat, framed rectangular surface depicting objects in space – the basis of everything from the fine art of oil painting to the structure of the computer screen – took millennia to emerge and remains a field of broad cultural and cross-cultural contestation.

After exploring these and many other topics in the visual humanities, we hope that our students will have been transformed – that they will never look at anything the same way again.
