Taught By: Bonnie Marranca

Section: AX

CRN: 7145

Credits: 4

This course is organized around the study of the major modern movements, which include Futurism, Dada, Expressionism, Constructivism, Bauhaus, and Surrealism. Theatre, dance, painting, photography, music, film, architecture, graphic arts, and interior design shaped by these styles are studied in the major documents, manifestos, performance texts, and art writings of the period. The artists and art forms of Italy, France, Germany, and Russia are the primary focus of attention. They are explored in extensive readings and visual materials. Analysis of the works emphasizes the impact of 20th century social and political transformations on the creation of new artistic forms. Important issues include: the body and performance; conceptions of time, space, and sound; language experiments; politics and the avant-garde (revolution, totalitarianism, utopia); media and technology; spirituality and art; performance/art/dance/music collaborations; spectatorship and urban space; modern art and its public.
