Art and Design in London

Why study this module?

This module considers how art and design artefacts, both produced and located in London, can be studied and understood in the context of the social, political, cultural and economic circumstances of their production or collection.

Throughout this four-week module you will study the art and design of London, with examples selected to represent the long, rich and varied history of London as a settlement. There will be a series of guided and curated visits to galleries, collections, houses and buildings that will reveal the range of artworks and designed objects in London and the purposes they served. You will be taken to both the world-famous cultural sites of London and some of the lesser known or hard to access places that offer insight into how art and design are inextricably linked with the economy, image and life of London.

All of our summer school modules are worth 15 UK credit points / 3 US credit points / 7.5 ECTS, and upon successful completion we will provide you with a transcript of records.
