The course provides the students with a perspective on indigenous cultural expressions and art in the past and the present. The way of thinking and the meaning of indigenous cultural expressions are discussed from the point of view of individual artists and different indigenous groups. The course examines the position of indigenous cultural expressions also in the context of western art in different periods and indigenous societies. In addition, the students will analyze (the connection between) indigenous cultural expressions and art in the postcolonialist critical theories and in the indigenous epistemology. The themes of the course are approached both theoretically and through students’ assignments.

The course is divided into two (2) areas of study:
1) Contemporary Sámi art and duodji.
2) The cultural expressions and art of indigenous peoples.
