ARTH 6691 - Art and Globalization

Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Co-meets with ARTH 4691 /VISST 4691 .

I. Dadi.

While globalization is a process unfolding over many centuries, it has arguably intensified in recent decades. The incorporation of the communist world and independent nation-states into global finance and transnational capitalism from the 1970s onwards has resulted in temporal acceleration and spatial compression on a planetary scale. In the world of art, this has resulted in multifaceted developments. The rise of a spectacular global installation art in biennials and art fairs is also accompanied with myriad local practices that engage with society and politics. This seminar will examine contemporary art in multiple historical and methodological frameworks. Topics covered will include the relation between art and institutions, new patronage structures, neoliberal subjectivities, new materialisms, informal life worlds, digital and social medias, violence, migration, and ecological destruction.
