There are many circumstances in which writing or speech can be represented in visual art. Rather than attempting to address the relationship between words and images in some larger sense, Prof David Clarke from University of Hong Kong will look at a particular subset of that large and amorphous category of visual images in which writing or speech is represented: it will specifically consider cases where either writing or speech is presented in art as incomprehensible to the viewer. In this lecture, a variety of cases from different times and places will be considered, from the 17th Century to the present day, but with the emphasis being on art of the last two centuries.
