Latin American Bodies: on Modernism (3 cr.)

Designed as a laboratory of ideas and forms, this seminar will probe critical perspectives on art and architecture's relation to society and science. Focusing on the different ways the ‘modern’ body has been portrayed by intellectuals and artists—as mechanized, controlled, Taylorized, and regimented—we will explore theories of the body and its inevitable entanglement within technology and economics. Each week, we will examine an artist, an architect, and a theorist—from early Structuralism to Post-humanism.

Art, Revolution, War: Modern Art in Violent Times (3 cr.)

This seminar examines the ambition (or lack thereof) of modern art to play an active role during periods of violent conflict. From the French Revolution to the recent disastrous American engagements in the Middle East wars to the never-ending war on terror, artists have produced images that attempt to actively engage in these conflicts. This class will examine the relative successes and failures of art during times of violent revolution and war within the modern era.
