Critical Theory/Art History 2

Taught over two semesters, this seminar provides an introduction to key concepts in art history, theory and criticism in relation to current social, political and philosophical concerns. Its goal is to bring students into contact with primary texts relevant to the theory and practice of art today, to imagine affinities and conversations across the geography of the 20th Century. Seminars will often be devoted to a single, indicative exhibition or body of work that will serve as a focus for the larger theoretical issues at hand.
