Savage Barbarians and Exotic Citizens: Views of the Other as Seen Through Chinese Art
May 23, 2016 - 14:00-16:00
Lecture by Michel Lee, Curator at the Swedish National Museums of World Culture and Director of The Museum of Far Eastern Antiquity.
This talk explores depictions of ”foreigners” in Chinese art. It applies historical accounts, as well as works of fiction, to art history in order to show the changing attitudes and ideas of what it means to be foreign within Chinese society through the ages. This inevitably leads to questions of how the Chinese defined themselves while depicting the Other.
Venue: Aulan, Kräftriket 4A, Stockholm, Sweden
