Emma, Government discussed on I Learned Something in College!?


You can take that would be definitely considered within the realm of postcolonial studies covers cultural studies. Art history is like fundamentally interdisciplinary. So yes that would be part of art history but that's also part of like cultural studies. It covers like marches area to like the imperialist postcolonial analysis of how we have constructed knowledge in western society. Like i think that's pretty interdisciplinary. E-eh that's pretty much every art field got it like that is just the way of art. I mean i think it's a really good point. That's a very hot topic right now. I love it do it personally. I think you guys have brought up some good points knowing the social and material history of i guess the world just like all material objects all images so. It's not necessarily just intentional are oh the statue that had like feminist intentions in such a lot of it is looking at objects that were created for like monday newses and saying what does this say about the culture that produced it and like what kind of techniques were involved in this so that also ties in with your meam. Scholarship in protest art study stuff. Yeah exactly yeah so like the black lives matter. Signs on the street like the handmade ones like there could be an art historical analysis of that. Okay like how. They've evolved over time in their commonalities between them. Yeah sort of like in the eighties and nineties. All sorts of academic realms in the west sort of became aware of this like white supremacist. Patriarchal already aware of it. But like it became in canon of academia this structure which is often very classiest and like it only considers like these like very elite artist is true artists. And the artha comes from emma's the only like before that period people didn't really consider like the low arts arts. they considered them crafts. But after that period we exist in like post that sort of revolution so now art history refers to all material culture. Wait wait including books and things like that. Yeah like we learn about bookmaking one of my classes. It was pretty cool like there's a very methodological and technical skill to like putting together a handmade book. It's really interesting. We also had a not like an entire class on that but part of our core curriculum was literally like how books are made in the history of them in different things like that. Yeah i particularly love. The books that are made with human skin. Hey there's a lot you can say about that. Visually does art history with regards to books. Only refer to the physical bookmaker other refer to writing as well. Probably both i mean i would say that art historians usually leave that kind of analysis to english folks just because it's like sort of their territory but you could write in art historical analysis of books in like an author of a book. It's just not something that we usually cover just because there so many people who love literature and spend so much time writing on that that's fair but yet artists visually interesting because like there's a whole language to it and understanding and unpacking the images that are around us every day because since the dawn of time images have been used as propaganda. And i don't mean this in like the government. Is you know what i mean. That prouder propaganda but like every image has its own rhetoric..
