About the book:
Marija Mojca Pungercar started the How Has Art History Changed book in1999, during her graduate study of new genres at the San Francisco Art Institute in U.S.A. She was stimulated to do this project by the confrontation with American art history and her own experience being an international student and artist.
The book has got its name after the Graduate Art History Seminar, “How Has Art History Changed?” The instructor of the course was Dr. Jeannene M. Przyblyski. The book of Marija Mojca Pungercar partly imitates the structure of the course reader. The main body is the school papers of Marija Mojca Pungercar, equipped with the responses of the instructor Dr. Jeannene M. Przyblyski, as they occurred during this educational process. Later on Marija Mojca Pungercar circulated the reader among a group of people she invited to further contribute to the How Has Art History Changed project. She encouraged them to submit their own comments (notes, texts, drawings, photos, etc…).
Nineteen people participated in the project by expanding upon the dialogue on art history topics that had originally started between Dr. Jeannene M. Przyblyski and Marija Mojca Pungercar.
