Course Description: 

This class surveys European art from roughly 1900-1945, paying particular attention to the social contexts in which this work emerged and the interpretive strategies that have been used to understand it. Among the topics to be considered are Cubism, Futurism, Constructivism, Dada, and Surrealism, as well as the reaction against these by emergent authoritarian regimes of the 1930s.
