MODERN ART and SOCIETY

In this course the central theme will be “Modern Art and Society”, a.k.a. the relation between modern art and society. In this context, Education, art movements, social movements, society, politics and art are also related.  Modern art movements influence our lives whether we are aware of it or not. In the meantime, these movements are influenced by society. Apart from this fact, art is one of the ways we express our repressions, feelings and unconscious desires, etc. It is still discussed if art education should be encouraged more. In this course, we will read the works of John Dewey, Susan Gablik, Jürgen Habermas, Clement Greenberg, and some other writers. Your research projects will focus on the aspects of real life but they will also be critical of politics, society, and art, etc.  your presentation topics will be related to issues of art and society as well
