ART 3605: Modern Art: Image and Power (2024-2025)

View all ART classes

In the modern period, trends like industrialization, globalization and class upheaval changed the world’s visual culture. Developments in Europe and America were exported across the world. Familiar stereotypes developed. Powerful propaganda was created. And artists, more globally aware, strove to imbue their images with a “universal” psychological power. In this class, we will explore the relationship between art and power in the 19th and 20th centuries, with a focus on the consolidation of American cultural dominance.
