Andean Art: Visual Expression and Its Relation to Andean Beliefs and Values
The aim of the book is to explore various facets of artistic expression (ranging temporally from four thousand years ago to the present day) in the Andean regions of South America, based on themes: social contexts, cultural expressions, recontextualisation, construction and meaning, and the role of art in the creation and animation of Andean landscapes. The various authors also move towards an archaeology, anthropology, or art history of visual expression that allows for an assessment of self-critical and reflexive developments on the part of the people who produced the artistic works under consideration. These visual worlds they created and continue to create make art in the Andes a fruitful and exciting field of study.
