Contemporary Art (Zyklus IV)
This course introduces students to global modern and contemporary artistic practices and their critical vocabulary from a transcultural, horizontal perspective. Framed by the histories, theories, and discourses of modernity and globalization, the course examines the main practices, concepts, themes and debates that structure the study of global contemporaneity. These include, but are not limited to, the problem of defining contemporary art and its institutions in relation to neoliberal global capitalism, the re-alignment of geopolitics and art historical production vis-à-vis diverse protagonists and axes of power, the struggle for decolonization in the postcolonial condition, the significance of territories and borders as sites for the production of knowledge, the importance of technologies for the processes of subjectivization, the struggle to define a shared ‘we’ in relation to fragmented categories of socialization, and the crisis around the survival of humanity in relation to climate change and other threats to our environment.
