Art, Cultural Identity, Social Change: Political History of Cont Spanish Art: Goya to Global Society


This Duke in Madrid course is a survey of Spanish contemporary art from Goya to current art practices. From an interdisciplinary perspective, including new contributions from art history, performance, cultural, visual, and women studies, the course explores the evolution of social, political, economic, and cultural contexts that have shaped Spanish art from the origins of the modernity to the present. In addition to theoretical lectures, and during visits to some important art collections, the professor will provide students with key points of discussion—artistic, but also economic, cultural and political contextual keys in order to build a collective conversation.
