VA 514 Modernities and Modern Art Select Term:
Since the initiation of debates concerning the post-modern and postmodernism, there has been a tendency to neglect questions of the meanings of the modern in art and culture. This course will explore the possibilities of understanding the modern not as a single event but as a series of breaks in tradition or orientation in art, openning up possibilties of understanding the particularities of modern visual art in Turkey as well as elsewhere. Comparative perspectives will therefore be encouraged so that students may develop critical vocabularies for assessing different art from different cultural situations and moments.
