Course Description: "This course introduces the role of modernism as an antecedent of contemporary practice. Students analyze the social, political, and economic underpinnings of modernity that gave rise to modern art. The modern period is characterized by contradictory forces, from utopianism and technophilia to a new interest in unreason, disorder, and destabilization. Students study realism, abstraction, utopian visions, expressionism, surrealism, and art and the everyday. They make links between historical developments within their specific contexts and their contemporary legacies.
