This course looks in some depth at the social and political impetus behind 20thC. art in Germany and its cultural background up to and including the Third Reich. A similar time frame and approach is then taken to Russia/USSR up to and including the Stalinist Era. Connections between the two cultures will be made throughout.
Topics range from the work of Francis Bacon to the Young British Artist phenomenon.
Teaching delivery is in a lecture format accompanied by visual images. There is opportunity for discussion and debate about the various topics within the lesson. Students are encouraged to visit galleries to view the originals of some of the artists work studied during the course.
Assessment is on-going.
There are no entry requirements for this course.
