Course Description: 

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.
