Modern Art and Mass Culture


Modern Art and Mass Culture

Logo for Modern Art and Mass Culture
This class provides an introduction to modern art and theories of modernism and postmodernism. It focuses on the way artists use the tension between fine art and mass culture to mobilize a critique of both. We will examine objects of visual art including painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, and video. These objects will be viewed in their interaction with advertising, caricature, comics, graffiti, television, fashion, folk art, and so-called "primitive" art.

First, I think it would be more accurate to label this a 'course structure' as it contains insufficient information for independent study. That said, the resource should be valuable for educators seeking to design a course in the area of modern art and mass culture. The resource comprises a syllabus, lecture notes (pdf format), assignments, exams and reading lists. The course content and organisation seem logical and a potentially stimulating range of works is covered to support each lesson. The lecture notes vary in the level of detail provided, with some offering more detailed guidance than others in terms of the suggested lesson content. Again, while this should not be problematic for an educator specialising in this area it does limit the potential of the resource for an independent learner.
