IAHIS 4200 Representing Representation

This course begins from the premise that all images are mediated by pre-existing images. Through a wide variety of case studies, ranging from Velazquez' Las Meninas" to MAD Magazine it examines how artists have confronted the question of cross-references of visual images in different eras; how they have produced new fictions by exploiting illusions of mirrors imaging themselves making statements about the enterprise of art making and quoting other images quite openly.
