Students explore the cultural and artistic responses to the major modern, social, and political revolutions between the end of the 18th and 20th centuries. The focus is on rarely covered artistic responses to political, social, and religious revolutions of the 20th century. Historical, political, philosophical currents and their impact on painting, sculpture, and architecture are analyzed. Using a cross-cultural and interdisciplinary approach, the visual arts are viewed in the context of their relationships to political, social, and religious events of their representative time periods.
