ARTHI4035-03: Seminar in Postmodern art and theory
Wednesdays, 2:30-5:30 EB217

Cindy Sherman's -Untitled (Film Stills)- from -The Pictures Generation-COURSE DESCRIPTION: Unlike Modernist art, postmodernism no longer proclaims its autonomy, its self-sufficiency, or its transcendence. Instead it narrates its own contingency, insufficiency, and immanence. Postmodernism's deconstructive thrust allows us to compare art arising from a dissatisfaction with "modernity." This course focuses on the culture and codified signs of this dissatisfaction—reflected in art, theory, music, and politics—as well as the pleasures to be found therein.
