Art History Readings and Semiotics Doç. Dr. Seda Yavuz

Speaker: Seda Yavuz

We will focus on the adventure of art history; The changing descriptions of art, theorists and art historians using different methods in art history constitute the main axis of our seminar. Our seminar will come to an end with the 'art history' readings initiated with Vasari, a selection from the history of method, and finally, Umberto Eco's visual arts reading detailed in his book Open Artwork and the analysis example made using semiotics.
