No. 213 Art and Politics: What happened Between the Wars (Zoom Online)

Thursdays, January 6th (4-weeks)

Time: 7:00-9:00 pm

Instructor: Cynthia Weisfiled

R $40; NR; $45; GC $35

Art is usually analyzed by formalistic considerations such as line, shape and color. This course will augment that trope by examining art as a socio-political phenomenon reflective of a time, place and society, a concept that will be made clear by a study of representative objects throughout history.  What follows will be a deep look at how art was used as a defining mechanism by dictators to mold and manipulate their respective populations between the wars in Italy, Russia, and Germany. This is a very rapid paced course covering an extremely wide and varied range of material.  Participants will be sent the Zoom link a day or two before the class begins so don’t forget to include your email on your registration.  No prior experience is needed with Zoom.
