Broadcasting Modernism | Modern Art and Mass Culture Podcasts

4.602 Modern Art and Mass Culture is an introduction to theories of modernism and postmodernism and their related forms (roughly 18th century to present) in art and design. The course focuses on how artists use the tension between fine art and mass culture to critique both and examines visual art in a range of genres, from painting to design objects and "relational aesthetics." Works of art are viewed in their interaction with advertising, caricature, comics, graffiti, television, fashion, "primitive" art, propaganda, and networks on the internet.
