2119 - Art & Memory: Examining the Repercussions of Conflict
During times of prolonged struggle, art has often played a role in examining issues, documenting actions, protesting causes and then remembering loss and triumph. Throughout this 10-week course we will discover how the art and architecture worlds have reacted to the conflict, both at the time of its occurrence and within our memory. Analyzing multiple artistic, political, and social movements, while uniting lecturers from various backgrounds, we will examine our visual perspectives on the past with the hope that it might inform our futures. 1: Europe's Iconoclasm, a beginning 2: Louis David: The French Revolution, Ruth Caccavale, art historian & lecturer 3: The Harlem Renaissance: Alicia Hylton-Daniel, architectural designer 4: The Closure of the Bauhaus & Architecture's Internationalization 5: The Nazi Stolen Art 6: Performance Art and the Vietnam War 7: The Berlin Wall Table: Ann Cowperwaithe, sculptor 8: The Guerrilla Girls: A Feminist Struggle: Melissa Dollman, researcher 9: The Twin Towers Memorial: Lester Levine, author 10: Ravaged by War -- the Rebuilding of Place Lecture (plus questions).
