CEES / AH 246 – European Avant-Garde: Revolution in Arts
On Campus, MWF 11:00-11:50
Instructor: Dr. Julia Vaingurt
The Russian Revolution, WWI, the rise of Hitler… Freud and the unconscious, Einstein and relativity, Marx and class-consciousness… Airplanes,  automobiles, and assembly lines… Radio, telephone, typewriter, and the movie camera… How did these radical developments in politics, science, technology and everyday life affect practices of creating art? What role did art play in these revolutions? What innovations in art did this new era inspire, and, conversely, how did art shape life?
This course will provide a critical introduction to the avant-garde as a pan-European, international phenomenon. Exploring such experimental and iconoclastic art movements as Cubism, Futurism, Dada, Surrealism, and Constructivism, we’ll concentrate on the cross-fertilization of ideas between cultures and media. We’ll analyze the ideology and aesthetics of various avant-garde formations, investigating literature, film, architecture and visual arts.
