Hours & Credits
Performance has a long history of relationships with a wide range of visual arts and media. From the
development of theatrical spectacle in masques, festivals and opera through to the latest multi-media
performance and installation work, this history offers a rich territory for the exploration of the nature of
visual perception and experience. This module is an invitation to look at painting, film, video, photography,
scenography, architecture, to engage with theories of visual culture both contemporary and historical, and
to explore the rich visual cultures available to be seen in London's many and various galleries and museums.
