ARTH 6190 - Comparative Modernities

(crosslisted) ART 6690  
Fall. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Co-meets with ARTH 4690 /VISST 4641 .

I. Dadi.

Since the late 19th century, the effects of capitalism across the globe have been profoundly transformative and have intensified with the demise of the older colonial empires, the rise of nationalism and independent states, and the onset of neoliberal globalization. These transformations are manifested in the domains of high art, mass culture and popular culture, yet remain inadequately studied. This seminar theorizes and explores non-Western modernist and postmodernist art practice in a comparative framework. Taught as a seminar, it assumes active participation by advanced undergraduate and graduate students who have a prior knowledge of Euro-American modernism and art history, and who wish to better understand the great artistic and visual transformations in the 20th century in a global context.
