How Art Made the World

Thu 20 Sep 2012, 3 pm


VAV cordially invites you to the last screening of the art documentary series “How Art Made the World” (or How humans made art and art made us human) by BBC. The series consist 5 episodes each one is 60 minutes long.

Why does our world look like it does? That great modern mystery is spectacularly unravelled in this international landmark series; an epic quest across five continents and 100,000 years – via some of the greatest treasures of the ancient world – to the heart of human creativity. Discovering how the first big artistic discoveries were made, and how they have cascaded down the centuries to define the look of the present day – this is your invitation to see the world from an utterly new perspective. Encompassing everything from cave paintings to ceramics and pyramids to palaces, the series probes the global trend for unrealistic depictions of the human body; the secret powers of the feature film; how politicians manage to manipulate people so easily; visions of death and the afterlife; and crucially, why we use imagery at all.

Beautifully, surprising, and compelling, this awe-inspiring adventure is not only for art lovers, but for anyone who has ever wondered about their place in the world.

Language: The film is in English with English subtitle ONLY.

The screening is non-profit and aims for studies and research only.

Free Entrance.
