[237120, A2] Wk 6: Task 4 – Essay Topic Research
The topic of the video is the Atlantic Slave Trade, covering the European motives behind the slave trade, the African tribal motivations to support the European slave trade, and how this fostered racial prejudices extending into contemporary socio-political issues. This can be integrated into my essay by including points of information on the African views during the Scramble for Africa as the non-dominant worldview in deciding maps. These issues are important for artists/designers in understanding how context influences works of artists/designers, both in analysing the works of others and understanding our own artistic processes.
