Let MoMA be your guide to examining major artists, artworks, and movements after World War II. Through prerecorded videos, slideshows, and lectures, you will explore the emergence of the New York School and its links to a new global economy centered in New York City, Dada's revival, Pop art's flowering in mass consumer society, and Minimalism's formal refinement and emphasis on spatial context. The course will then consider Conceptual art's fundamental questioning of art, the development of multimedia artistic practices and performance art, and the influence of identity politics on art. Each week of the course includes exclusive videos- shot in MoMA's galleries- of works by Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, Donald Judd, Eva Hesse, George Maciunas, Louise Lawler, Nan Goldin, and many more. Lectures, slideshows, and written and multimedia content enrich and contextualize videos from the galleries.
