URBS 264 - The Metropolitan Avant-Gardes

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
(Same as ART 264  and MEDS 264 ) Radical prototypes of creativity and self-organization were forged by the new groups of artists, writers, filmmakers and architects that emerged in the first decades of the twentieth century. They based themselves in the new metropolitan centers.  The course studies the avant-gardes’ different and often competing efforts to meet the economic transformation that industrialization was bringing to city and country alike. Afterward, the role of art itself would be seen completely differently. Molly Nesbit.

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

Two 75-minute periods and one weekly film screening.
