Re-illustrating Histories and Voices
This project aims to address the under representation of diverse voices in the teaching of theory and contextual studies in Illustration through co- creating a series of teaching resources that actively diversify references and topics.
We identified six practitioners whose life experiences and illustration practice are concerned in some aspect with the representation race, gender, sexuality, class, religion and landscape. These interviews will focus on the illustrator presenting a critical analysis of one historical example of illustration practice that has addressed representation of difference positively and a reflection on how this has influenced their own illustration practice.
The films will be screened firstly as part of the theory and contextual units for 1st and 2nd year Illustration students at UAL Camberwell College of Arts.
The interviews intend to be completed by September 2019.
