Cíle předmětu
In July 1972 the prize-winning Pruitt-Igoe housing estate in St. Louis was demolished. Commonly seen as embodying the utopian ideals of modern art and architecture, its destruction was seen as a key turning point. In place of the utopian and critical stances of modernism and the avant-garde there emerged in the early 1970s a sceptical and fractured art world, in which art seemed to have lost its historical, political and cultural compass. This course examines the development of art during the 1970s and 1980s. It considers questions such as: Had modernism ended in this period? If so, what did that mean? Why critics talk about the period as marking the end of art? What was the relation between art and architecture and wider political events? The course will consider a wide range of examples from Europe and North America, but it will also explored the globalisation of contemporary art and the 'provincialising' of the Western art world.
