Description

This course offers an introduction to the emergence of European Modern Art (1800-1950) in the global context.  We will look at the formation of Europe and European Art as cultural entities framed and shaped by political and economic struggle, emerging nationalism, colonialism and global expansion.

In distinct chapters, we will examine the transformation of art in the course of Modernism: exhibitions and art journals proliferate as new art publics emerge; visuality is being transformed by the experience of modern urban space; non-Western art is appropriated in Orientalism, Expressionism and Primitivism; new media such as photography and film are being introduced; performative and spatial art practices emerge. We will specifically look at intermedial approaches, interconnections of art and design, artistic engagements with new media,  the notion of the "Gesamtkunstwerk", and the modernist concept of art as an experiment for social change.

Framed by the histories, theories, and discourses of modernism and modernity, this lecture examines the main practices, concepts, themes and debates that structure their study. While it is organized as an introductory survey and broadly follows Western periodizations of modern artistic practices of the 19th and early 20th centuries, it also challenges concepts such as "European art", as well as stylistic classifications and the primacy of specific artistic genres and media. Using case studies, we will examine artistic practices in relation to their historical, socio-political, and institutional contexts and analyze the relation between social and aesthetic forms.
