ART 3575 - Orientalism and Techno-Orientalism in Art

This course explores Orientalism in art from nineteenth-century depictions by European and American artists of North Africa to the Middle East through Techno-Orientalist views of Asia by artists today. Subjects, motifs, and aesthetic principles of Orientalism from 1801 to c. 1930 are covered. The examination of Techno-Orientalism, heavily influenced by Japanese manga and anime, focuses on c. 1950 to the present. Emphasis is placed on social, political, and cultural contexts and interpretations of Orientalist and Techno-Orientalist art, including illustration and animation, architecture, sculpture, and decorative arts.
