Kunsthistorie/Visuel kultur: Kunst og kulturforskning:Del 1-Identitetsbilleder: selvportrætter og kunstnerkonstruktioner samt del 2-The Colonial Americas as Global Archive

Kursusindhold

Del 1:

Dette er første del af kurset Kunst- og Kulturforskning. Hvordan repræsenterer billedkunstnere subjekt, selv og identitet? Kurset vil med fokus på udvalgte værker fra det 20. og 21. århundrede undersøge, hvordan selvportrættet som klassisk kunsthistorisk genre udformes og udfordres.

Med inddragelse af centrale tekster skal vi diskutere, hvordan kunstneres identitetsbilleder iscenesættes og problematiseres i forhold til skiftende ideer om subjekt, kunstbegreb, kunstnermyter, krop, køn samt kulturel og social position, i specifikke kunsthistoriske kontekster. Med de teoretiske perspektiveringer, spændende fra psykoanalytiske, sociologiske, identitets- og feministiske tilgange, skal vi undersøge visuelle billedgreb og næranalysere værker, delvist udvalgt af kursets studerende. Den kanoniserende kunsthistoriske indskrivning af kunstnerpersona i kunstnerbiografi og -monografi vil udgøre en særlig gennemgående repræsentationsproblematik.

Del 2:

This seminar is the second part of the course Kunst og Kulturforsking. The seminar shifts perspectives from claiming colonial ignorance into questioning how art history can produce knowledge about the colonial. Given the urgency of art history’s ongoing global turn, we will move our focus away from Europe and focus instead on the diverse cultures forged in the colonial Americas. From Alaska to Argentina, five-hundred years of ongoing colonial occupation made possible the creation of material and visual culture at the confluence of Indigenous American, African, Asian, and European beliefs and practices. We will explore why the cultural syncretism of the Americas demands an expansive and vigilant approach to writing and researching art history. By taking the colonial Americas as a case study, the seminar familiarizes students with how art histories can contest and explicate racial formations, knowledge production, cosmopolitanism, ecology and extraction, gender binaries, as well as revolutions and uprisings.
 

The following questions will guide our inquiry: How do art historians address slavery, genocide, and epistemicide in their research and engagement with the archive? Is it possible to write about the injustices of colonialism without rehearsing its traumatic violence? What strategies can transcend the tempting binary of oppression and resistance? How might art historians practice an ethics of care for the colonial?


Teaching will take place in English, but students may submit assignments in English or any Scandinavian language.
