ART 341 - Art in Rebellion

Credits: 4
A seminar examining the concept of revolution as an integral part of modern art movements. Students critically examine the notion of the avant-garde through a study of the historical context of modernist movements, including artists’ statements, criticism, literature, music, film, and theory. These cultural elements are also placed within a larger social and political framework in order to analyze and assess all the aspects of revolutionary tendencies in modernist discourse. Topics vary, including art as radical politics, the impact of technology on the arts, the concept of anti-art, the experimentation with new art form, and the blurring of boundaries between high art and popular culture.

Prerequisite: ART 111 .

Distribution Requirements: HE, PD.
