After the historical and theoretical study of visual and material culture in years 1 and 2, year 3 of the bachelor of MKDA (Media, Art, Design and Architecture) problematizes the concept of visual culture by paying attention to the critique of the image and to iconoclasm. Attention will be paid to religious and political iconoclasm (e.g. the Iconoclastic Fury of the Reformation); theoretical critique of 'ocularcentrism' and its effects on film theory; the problematisation of the image in modern art; iconisation and iconoclasm in design; and the (imagination of) the city as contested area.
