LAPI 935 - Spain After Franco: The Flowering of the Arts since 1975

Through selected readings, in-class discussions, film screenings, field trips, guest speakers, lecture-demonstrations, and student presentations, we will develop a deep understanding of what this complex culture is like, how it became that way, and how it is likely to develop in the future. Artist to be studied include Basque sculptor Christina Iglesias, choreographer Nacho Duato, flamenco superstars Paco de Lucia, Estrella Morente and Sara Baras, plus filmmaker Pedro Almodovar.
