Description: This course explores modern and contemporary art and design from 1850 to the present. Thematically structured, this lecture course with tutorials examines issues associated with innovations in technology, shifting political and social attitudes, identity and difference, and nationalism and globalization. Students study points of intersections, collaborations, and parallels between artists and designers, as well as instances in which artists and designers addressed similar thematic concerns from separate vantage points. The course emphasizes how art and design are products of and shaped by broader cultural, social, economic, and political contexts and concerns.
