AH 360 - Art Analysis I: What is Modern Art? What is Modern?
The concept of “Modern Art” will be the theme of discussion of art movements that arose in the 20th century. This includes the value of color, space and form and the underlying theory of art and artists. Modern ideas in past periods of Art History will add a broader basis to the discussion. Artworks are analyzed from various perspectives, compared to related art in Vienna, and connected to the cultural background of the period from which they arose. The focus of the course is on artistic expressions of “modern”, new, innovative ways of seeing and experiencing the world.
