Description

This course, Commemoration: Visual texts, explores the commemoration of war through treating two war memorials the Sandham Memorial Chapel and the Royal Artillery Memorial as 'visual texts'. By helping you to respond to visual cues the course aims to develop your understanding of these memorials, not only as memorials but as artifacts or 'made objects'. It does this through consideration of such factors as the location of the monument; its function and purpose; its symbolism or realism; use of materials; and overall form.
