ARTH 4610 - Robots, Machines and the Body in Avant-Garde Art in the 1920s and 30s

5 credit hours
An in-depth investigation of radical vanguard art, artists and movements from 1900 until about 1939.   The course approaches this period by foregrounding fantasies and fears about the intersection between machines and human beings.   Students focus on such themes as: the history of the automaton, utopian visions of machines, modern notions of the body beautify, the “new woman,” the menacing machine and the robot as fantasy and nightmare.  

Prerequisite Course/s: ARTH-2110 or 2120 and one (1) 3000-level ARTH course or permission of instructor
