On successful completion of this module students should be able to:
Identify and classify works of modern art.
Explain the broad trends constitutive of modernity and modernism in the early twentieth century.
Interpret and compare works of modern art based on knowledge of the appropriate historical, historiographical, and critical contexts.
Locate and critically evaluate primary and secondary sources.
Construct and justify a written argument about works of modern art using the appropriate scholarly apparatus.
These explosions and torrents shattered and swept away centuries of tradition, in art, as elsewhere: the modern artist faced the unnerving, invigorating opportunity to remake art in the image of the modern, and the modern in the image of their art. This module investigates the rich polyphony of artistic responses to the challenge of being modern.
Taking a 'flipped learning' approach, students will read essential texts and watch pre-recorded lectures (1 hour per week, inclusive of activities) as guided independent study. Classroom time (1 hour per week) will be divided between student-led Q&A and discussion about the lectures and in-depth seminar-style discussion of important texts. Each student will also have a 1:1 tutorial for tailored feedback and guidance for their essay.
