Visual Imagination of India
School of Consciousness and Transformation PARA 7005 3.00
This online course (with a few museum visits) takes a novel approach to the introduction of Indian art history by isolating the major philosophemes (seed philosophical ideas) manifesting in the visual culture of India and its aesthetics. In this, it treats the history of Indian art and culture as an expanding discourse, where continuity and change are assimilated and often undergo transformations in terms of these ideas. The time period covered by the course stretches from 2700 BCE to the modern period.
