Visual Asia: tradition, market and identity
What is a Minor
A Minor is a taught study course composed of three modules of 6 ECTS each, that allow you to widen your studies with a glimpse at subjects that fall outside of your principal subject.
Passing the three exams required by the Minor, you will get a certification of the course you attended.
Educational Programmes Office
Art, cinema and internet reflect complex cultural and economic systems in constant evolution, heirs of multi-secular traditions and characterized by specific figurative and visual languages, variously attuned in time and space. The purpose of this minor course is to guide the student through a plurality of artistic expressions and forms of communication specific to certain regions of Asia, providing them with basic knowledge and critical tools to understand the visual culture of Asian societies, between tradition and modernity, also connected to expanding cultural industries and identity processes in continual transfiguration. The course does not require skills of a specific, linguistic or methodological basis.
This Minor is taught in Italian.
The Minor is aimed at Bachelor’s students at the university.
