MEDS 264 - The Metropolitan Avant-Gardes


1 unit(s)
(Same as ART 264  and URBS 264 ) Radical prototypes of self-organization were forged by the new groups of artists, writers, filmmakers and architects that emerged in the early twentieth century as they sought to define the future. The course studies the avant-gardes’ different and often competing efforts to meet the changing conditions that industrialization was bringing to culture, societies and economies between 1889 and 1929, when works of art, design, and film entered the city, the press, the everyday lives and the wars that beset them all. 

Prerequisite(s): ART 105  or ART 106 , or permission of the instructor.

Two 75-minute periods and one weekly film screening.

Not offered in 2021/22.
