Student-Created Podcasts

These podcasts were created by IU students who took the course Across Cultures: Universal Stories and Themes in Art (FINA-A 390/590) that was offered in the spring of 2012 and fall of 2013. This course utilized the rich resources and collections of the Eskenazi Museum of Art to better understand how artists throughout the ages and across the world have grappled with life’s big themes and stories. As a museum studies course, students applied the topic to projects that included these podcasts, as well as exhibition proposals and educational materials for teachers.


Urban Sprawl
Zachary Carlisle Davidson
6.37 min.
Zachary Davidson explores the recurring theme of the “urban sprawl” in prints by Friedensreich Hundertwasser and Max Beckmann, located in the museum’s Works-on-Paper collection, as well as Stuart Davis’s Swing Landscape, located in the Gallery of the Art of the Western World, first floor.


 

(Untitled)
Katie Roth
7.41 min.
Katie Roth investigates reliquary objects created by the Fang peoples in Southern Cameroon, Korowai peoples in Papua New Guinea, and those in medieval Christian cultures. She explains the different ways these cultures utilized reliquaries—containers for physical remains of the deceased—and describes the form and function of particular reliquaries found in the museum’s collections.


Labor & Identity
Chloe Bohlander
6 min.
Chloe Bohlander examines the role of the individual in society through depictions of labor and occupation in works of art spanning from Ancient Greece to the Great Depression. She describes how an ancient Greek vessel portraying a barber and his client reveals a shift in cultural attitudes, as well as how photography in mid-1930s America exposed daily life for those suffering the effects of the Great Depression and provided others with opportunities to empathize.
