Why Art History?! – Wendy Shaw and Juan de Lara

Wendy Shaw, professor of Islamic Art History at the Free University of Berlin, reflects on the importance of ‘Art History’ as a discipline to engage with the different narratives that conform our history and a subject that provides the means by which we can gain a different perspective by assuming a different way of being in the world.   

This podcast is part of Asia House Arts in Isolation Series and Converging Paths, an initiative organised in partnership with the Barakat Trust and the support of the Altajir Trust and the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, and promotes the arts and cultures of the Islamic World.
