This is a 10 session virtual professional module introducing the artistic culture of Islam from the viewpoint of its aesthetics and meaning. It is conceptualized like a forum for both learning and appreciating the rich and beautiful arts of Islam so that the audience will get a sense of what these arts mean and express for the Muslim faithful. The program aims to cover the most important artistic art forms and visual concepts that make the uniqueness of this culture in both aspects of its unity and diversity. The Muslim world is indeed vast and encompasses an immense variety of local cultures. It is also spiritually shaped by different interpretations of the Islamic faith. Yet, this world remains united through the shared acknowledgment of the truth of God’s words in the Qur’an and of God’s messenger and representative, Prophet Muhammad. This acknowledgment constitutes the metaphysical core of Islam that informs Islamic art making.

Classes will be based on visual materials displayed on screen. Fundamental spiritual concepts will be explained in an accessible manner. Therefore, there is no need to be familiar with Islam or knowledgeable in its culture, as the course proposes above all stimulating insights.

The audience will be able to ask questions as the lecturer will be talking or at the end of the presentations, during a questions and answers session.
