Aims and Objectives

Contemporary Art is art of our times; it reflects our lives. It will be exciting to get an insight into the enormous range of artwork that is being created today in our globalized world. The fact that all this is not canonized yet is a difficulty but also an opportunity; scholars cannot even agree on when contemporary art starts! So, we are free to make our own choices of what we want to deal with. This class aims to give an introduction to contemporary art, from its foundations to very current movements. A satisfying survey is impossible to give within a semester, but after this class you will be much more comfortable to dwell in the contemporary art world on your own.
