ARTE-2304B New Media

This course studies the art produced in Colombia, with emphasis on the 20th Century and contemporaneous art, while it provides historic bases of pre-Hispanic art, the Colonies and 19th Century processes. It analyzes the historiographic and critical tradition of art history in Colombia, placing emphasis on the study of the primary sources available. It tackles the evolution of the main institutional factors that have defined the structure of artistic discourses, on the level of works of art as well as that of criticism and art history. From this perspective, the political and social context will be a central point of the discussions. Special attention will be given to the processes of acceptance on the national level of foreign artistic movements, as well as the works of particular artists.
