Course Description

There is a pivotal point immediately preceding times of conflict in which the creative possibilities seem unimaginably endless. Following destruction there is typically a resurgence of those potentialities. In the arts, that edge/cusp inherent in the before and after often births new movements and spurs change. During this rare wrinkle in time, we will explore periods similar to that in which we exist now to better understand how our visual memories and creative responses inform our politics, our activism, and our collective futures. Topics include: The Iconoclasm in Northern Europe Colonialism: Imagery & Collecting of Cultures Liberte in the French Revolution So-Called "Degenerate Art" Looted & Destroyed Throughout Time Sumptuary Laws & Fashion's Influence Protest Art of the Vietnam Era The Guerrilla Girls ISIS & Al Qaeda Destruction Now. Black Lives Matter | Lecture + Q&A; Viewing videos.
