This course is for students who have an interest in the traditions and practices of East Asian arts. It provides a general introduction to modern and contemporary arts in Taiwan, such as visual art, cinema, performance art, and popular culture. It also reflects how this Asian community has absorbed different cultures (Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Dutch, Korean and American) to create a unique culture under the impact of globalisation.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
Understand the historical development of Taiwanese arts; demonstrate understanding of issues in the arts of modern Taiwan; explore different forms of Taiwanese art; integrate relevant knowledge into practical activities such as appreciation, discussion and comparison; acquire theoretical resources about modern Taiwanese art.
The final assessment scheme will be determined after consultation with the class.
