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

1 unit(s)
(Same as ART 265  and MEDS 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. Neither the theory nor the practice has become obsolete. Molly Nesbit.

Prerequisite(s): ART 105  or ART 106 .

Two 75-minute periods and one film screening.
