Visual and Material Culture: Course

Gods & Saints for Rent: Religious Motifs in Secular Visual Culture

Meiri-Dan Neomi, Dr., Semester 1, Sunday, 14:30-16:00
The aim of this course is to analyze the use of Pagan and Christian themes and motifs in “secular” visual culture. It will focus on works of art, as well as on political and commercial photographs/ posters/ artefacts, whose message is based on the reference to a religious myth, either "dead" or "live and kicking".
