This chapter deals with the aftermath of WW2. Find another work that does this – preferably from a non-Western point of view. Or, find a work that seems to be a reaction to the “splitting of the atom” and the age of nuclear power. Choose a work and include this info in your journal:
- Metadata: artist name, title of the work, date(s), place, collection if any, medium, size, any other relevant info to help us understand the work better
- Image(s) of the work. Do we need to see multiple views to understand it? If so, include those.
- Why should we study it? Reference the text on the post-war era / nuclear era, and other artworks we have studied/discussed. How does your selection engage with the critical conversation from those, and take it further? What is the critical value of your piece? (Here you should take at least 2 paragraphs to 1. Solidify the content in your mind and 2. Prove to me you know it)
- Why did you choose it? Your personal aesthetics – why does the piece resonate with you? (Here you should take at least 1 paragraph. Consider addressing visual elements like composition, shape, space, time, color, value, line, texture, focal point, sound, interactivity, material, place, etc.)
