INST 3008 - Asian Art, Religion, and the Politics of Protest and Power

Hours: 3
This course explores how Asian artists and activists have used creative thought and visual expression to challenge and subvert unjust power structures. Focusing on some of the most influential visual artists, filmmakers, and playwrights in the 19th to 21st centuries, it considers their work within historical, ideological, and socio-political contexts throughout Asia. In addition to examining the complex ways that art has been used for protest, the course turns the critical lens on ourselves, to understand how we encounter creative media in our own lives and how these encounters impact our identities, ideologies, and social realities in often invisible ways.
Prerequisites: Junior standing or above, and a minimum of one course from at least four of the following INST threads: 2000, 2200, 2400, 2600, and 2800.
