Understanding Visual Language I

Rather than take a western intellectual history approach to visual art and its language, Dr Simon Soon looks at specifics and through that, give us another way to understand the visual language used by artists and art critics. Here he explores what happens when the discipline of art takes inspiration from cultural anthropology and to engender a new artistic language and a new movement.
