ART 364 - Seminar in Twentieth Century and Contemporary Art

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
(Same as MEDS 364 ) Topic for 2021/22a: The World Picture: What defines a world? Increasingly the work of art is asked to take on this question, which has been the province of philosophy for centuries. This year the seminar looks at the way contemporary art has taken the idea of the world picture apart to produce a set of critiques and alternative visions so that the organization of the world’s aspects can be better considered. The question that haunted the twentieth century, what is a self? or, to put it slightly differently, what is a subject? has been transformed. The new questions turn on redefinitions of collectivity, or what is currently called self-organization. Molly Nesbit.

Prerequisite(s): Permission of the instructor.

One 2-hour period.
