AHD-1030 / AHD-1035
Visuality and Modern Art I and II
Two semesters: 3 art history credits per semester
These courses will examine the interconnections among modern art, modernity and visuality. Topics will include the historical development of “modern” vision, the impact of photography and film on visualization, and the decline of realism and the emergence of abstraction. The goal of these courses is to bring together historical, philosophical, scientific and technological studies of visuality and relate them directly to “modern” artistic practice.
