AHY 3308 - World Contemporary Art

Credits: 4.0
This course explores the main transformations undergone by art objects and art institutions during the last five decades. The course is divided into three parts. First, it charts the major shifts in art since the 1960s. In the second part, it explores artistic practices in non-western geopolitical contexts such as Eastern Europe, China, Latin America, Africa and West Asia. The third and final part of the course will outline more recent trajectories in contemporary art that showcase an enhanced awareness of the mediated nature of experience, local specificities and planetary interconnections. Through close readings of primary source texts and scholarly articles, exams, illustrated lectures, in-class discussions and dates, short response papers, a field trip to Baltimore and Washington DC area, and a final research paper, we will examine the intersection of contemporary art with everyday life, politics, mass media and architecture.
