The Department of the Arts

The burgeoning Department of the Arts at the Ben-Gurion University, established in 1999, has gained a reputation of being young, dynamic, and innovative in its definition of the boundaries of the discipline of art history. Without wholly forsaking the historical perspective adopted by the more traditional departments of art history, the Department of the Arts aims to provide the student with the broad interdisciplinary and cross-cultural background that is necessary for confronting head-on the artistic "presence" nurtured by the modern cultural context. This is well attested to by the singular attention given in its curriculum to the concept of visual culture in its interdisciplinary and intercultural dimensions, and the special emphasis placed on subjects that directly engage the artistic "presence" developing around us – in the context of contemporary art in general and Israeli art in particular.
