Global Images Metropol Futures

Fall 2019

Taught By: Margarita Gutman

Section: A

CRN: 7082

Credits: 3

This course explores the way the urban future is envisaged by different disciplines in different geographies: Buenos Aires, Mumbai (Bombay), New York, and Shanghai. The course looks at these cities from the perspectives of visual culture, architecture, urban planning, art history, geography, and other social sciences. It analyzes the patterns and complexity of the international flow of visual culture related to images of the future, their agency, conditions of dissemination, and interaction with local contexts. Studying cities on different continents, the course examines how globalization affects local images and visions and is in turn affected by them. Students compare images and ideas from different cities, evaluating the content and power of these diverse images of the future and the way they influence aspects of urban life, including the built environment, culture, society, and the economy.
