“Body and pleasure in the history of art »
Friday, October 12th, 14h00, salle 307
This lecture will trace the evolution of the depiction of the body and physical pleasures from the 15th century until today. It aims to give the participant a historical view of themes associated with the depiction of the body, such as sin and shame, voyeurism, objectification, gender relations, flesh and skin, and ask how the representation of the body and pleasure in Western art have influenced or differ from contemporary depictions.
