1. Liere, Sil van. Cityscapes and the urban environment in contemporary art from China.

Degree: 2016, Leiden University

Today, art from China is very different from that of the 1980s and 1990s. Contemporary Chinese urban art is critical of the modernization China has been experiencing the past decades. It is mostly done in the media of photography, sculpture and installation art. Most obviously this criticism can be seen in the cityscape. This cityscape is most times a pastiche of construction, combining into a vast city. Many installation artists construct such a city by using real cities as model, and they often use consumer items as material. But also many photographers create cityscape montages; they use digital software to combine photographs of the urban space into one big collage. There are five themes that prominently express the artists’ concerns over China’s urbanization: futurism, globalization, negativity, sinification, and disconnection. Artists apply (often several of) these themes onto the urban space they depict. Advisors/Committee Members: Moore, O.J (advisor).

2. Paul, P. Wandering saints : Chan eccentrics in the art and culture of Song and Yuan China.

Degree: 2009, Leiden University

<table><tbody><tr><td> In Chinese history, few personalities compare to the Chan eccentrics. These legendary, exceptional monks, including the friends Hanshan and Shide, their teacher Fenggan, and Budai, supposedly dwelled in the mountains and cities of southeast China between the seventh and tenth centuries. Dressed in rags, the monks spoke and acted in extraordinary ways. The eccentrics represented qualities that were valued by various social and religious groups, most prominently the Chan (also known as Zen, after its Japanese translation) establishment. In the Song and Yuan dynasties (960-1368), the monks appear throughout Chan texts, and they become a popular and recurring theme in art. This study investigates the theme of the Chan eccentrics in the art and culture of the Song and the Yuan. It focuses on the role of the eccentrics and their visual representations for Chan Buddhism, while also paying attention to the interpretation of this theme in other traditions, and in forms of art that are not generally associated with Chan. The study shows how the translation of this theme in texts and art questions long-held notions in the fields of Chinese Studies, Art History and Chan Studies, including definitions of “religious tradition”, “portraiture” and “Chan art”.</td></tr></tbody></table> Advisors/Committee Members: Crevel, M. van, Moore, O.J., Leiden University.

3. Feyder, Sophie. Portraits of resilience : writing a socio-cultural history of a black South African location with the Ngilima photographic collection. Benoni, 1950s-1960s.

Degree: 2016, Leiden University

  <table align="center" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width: 100%;" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> This thesis engages with the ongoing debate regarding how photographs can contribute to the writing of black South African history. In the field of South African visual history, a significant literature explores the “white gaze” that emanates from the administrative and missionary photographic archives of the colonial period. Comparatively fewer studies, however, have addressed how black South Africans pictured themselves, largely due to the presumption that black visual archives are scarce and difficult to access. This thesis draws upon previously unexplored photographic evidence from the mid twentieth century—intimate photographs found in black homes. I argue that these images constitute an alternative archive and original source of history. Such archives present a radically different perspective on black urban communities than that emanating from public photographic collections. Photographic portraiture translates how black South Africans wanted to be seen, according to their own conventions. To study everyday photographic practices is to reflect on the set of values, attitudes and ideas that influenced this exercise of self-representation. This thesis employs a variety of methods and approaches—photo elicitation, identifying patterns in poses and conventions, scrutinizing background details, and locating photographs in today’s landscape—to help unravel the historical relevance of seemingly mundane images. </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <div style="clear: both;">   Advisors/Committee Members: Ross, R.J., Spyer, P., Gewald, J.B., Nieftagodien, Noor, Moore, O.J., Westmoreland, M.R., Leiden University.
