Topics: The representation of the human body is a major theme in the history of the arts. Subjected to restrictions and canons, or freed from inhibitions, a mirroring of social standards and aesthetic aspirations, the human figure became one of the foremost preoccupations of artists, from prehistory, and up to the modern era. It has been explored in painting, sculpture, photography, performance or decorative arts, and sometimes the body itself was treated as a work of art. We invite contributions that discuss various aspects of the human body represented in the arts, in various cultures and historical eras. A non-exclusive list of topics might include:
- Artistic styles and representing the human body
- Anatomy and identity
- Body integrity and body alteration.
- Nudity in the arts
- Body proportions and the artistic canon
- Concepts of beauty
- The social/political interpretation of the body
- Attitude and movement
