    Art History Lectures 2013-2014

    Led by Sylvie Corroler-Talairach

    To understand art history, it is necessary, of course, to understand a certain chronology. Not far from being just a succession of dates, art history is the visual depiction of our societies and our relationship with the world around us.
    In this way, an icon of Christ from the 10th century, a crucifixion from 1457 by Andrea Mantegna (Italy, 1431-1506) or the Piss Christ of Andres Serrano (contemporary American photographer), allow us to see the different definitions of a work of art in regards to the society in which it is produced. Through their formal differences, these works reveal the function of what we call today artistic production.
    This also shows us that despite the different forms of artistic expression, the desire to question humanity and reveal certain aspects of the human condition continues across all ages.
    This year, working across genres and time frames, we will explore how contemporary art is not a sporadic creation, but developed and continues to develop from tradition and ruptures with this tradition.
