FAVA 2236 Art Against the Academy
Prerequisites:Any 15 credits completed
Hours:Three hours of lecture per week for one term.
In this course, students explore subversive art practices during the “long” nineteenth century (1789 – 1914). In particular, students examine how dominant modes of institutional art production were reshaped to reflect a wider awareness of global visual cultures following colonization and imperialism; the destabilization of power dynamics within the discourses that framed aesthetics; and the shifting political and social realities of industrialized life.
