Description: In the aftermath of World War II, art's relationship to politics took on ever-more contested meanings. Although this relationship has been frequently identified under the sign of resistance, this course attempts to explore other, alternative ways of approaching the intersection between the visual and the political. A key question will concern art's capacity for social intervention: what makes art political? Can politics also assume form and shape and how does such an assumption in turn affect the making and reception of art? Of special interest will be visual art and its relationships during and in the aftermath of war (e.g., World War II, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, and the Iraq War) and paradigmatic changes in government (e.g., the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, the 1964 coup in Brazil, the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989). Open to all undergraduates that have taken at least one art history course. Not open to students who have taken "Art and Authoritarianism." C,D,E, 4
