Module content:
Depending on the thematic focus, e.g. _Kunst und Körper (Art and the Body)_:
Since the very beginning of art, man has been concerned with representing the body. How has the image of the body and the human being changed in history? And how is this reflected in art history and art theory?
In the course of the seminar, students will receive an overview of the development of art from antiquity to contemporary art based on the concept of the body. In addition, we will look at cross-sectional topics and monographic approaches in order to expand our knowledge. Meanwhile, students will develop, expand and deepen their basic knowledge about the different periods in fine arts, art theoretical approaches from different centuries and art historical sources.
