Art History with a Twist is a series of one hour presentations that surveys masterpieces throughout art history, with a focus on subjects that have been categorized as both deviant and divine. Close examination of alcohol, dance, and bodily fluids in the context of art illustrate how the depiction of these acts is intrinsically connected to the politics and cultural values of the time.
