ART 265 - Modern Art and the Mass Media: the New Public Sphere

1 unit(s)
(Same as MEDS 265  and URBS 265 ) When the public sphere was reset during the twentieth century by a new order of mass media, the place of art and artists in the new order needed to be claimed. The course studies the negotiations between modern art and the mass media (advertising, cinema, TV), in theory and in practice, during the years between the Great Depression and the liberation movements of the late 1960s–the foundation stones of our own contemporary culture. As a consequence, the physical spaces of culture would be reimagined and designed. Molly Newsbit.

Prerequisite(s): ART 105  or ART 106 .

Not offered in 2017/18.

Two 75-minute periods and one film screening.
