237.130 Week 4 TASK 2A – Question Evaluation

4. ‘The Changing World’ (Mirzoeff Chapter 6)

The assignment brief, as I read it, is asking me to essentially look at Mirzoeff’s idea of Western cultures’ “conquest of nature” (Mirzoeff 220), and the impact this has had on our environment. I should incorporate other sources and authors to discuss this. I then have to look at one example Mirzoeff has given of an artist concerned with these ideas, and look at two others of my choosing, and look at how they have expressed human impact on the environment/the changing environment, generally. The last aspect of the question requires that I evaluate the validity of the artworks in terms of the importance of discussing environmental destruction and its effects on the planet.
