Landscape as Memory, Representation and Construction

The aim of the course is to provide advanced knowledge of analysing three-dimensional constructions of landscapes, as well as painted, drawn or otherwise depicted landscapes, as both historical and contemporary phenomena. The language of instruction is English.

Based on themes such as construction, memory, representation and identity, we will investigate how changing national, political and artistic attitudes have influenced the depiction, understanding and interpretation of different types of landscapes.

The course provides essential skills for work in, for example, cultural heritage institutions, auction houses, galleries and in the cultural sector at the national and municipal levels.
