While the focus is on Western art and culture, this course will also explore a selection of contemporary art and artistic practices around the globe, which have become increasingly influential in the definition of contemporary art today. Artworks and art practices will be examined within social and aesthetic contexts with an eye on different strategies contemporary artists use in their work as a response to cultural, social and political forces.
