LAPI 927 - Becoming Modern: 1900 - 1914


An exploration of the innovations in the arts in the first decade and a half of the twentieth century when becoming Modern was the challenge facing every artist. The results were works that called into question almost every previous assumption about the arts. This was a period also characterized by radical changes in technology, in science, in philosophy, and in politics. This course investigates a wide range of material in order to bring some clarity to the elusive term “modern.” In addition to the assigned readings, papers, and discussions, students pursue their own interests in the decade through independent study “side trips” in the second half of the course.
