This course introduces key topics in post-war art from the end of the Second World War through to the end of the 1980s. Topics include abstract expressionism, conceptual art, the rise of new mediums (such as performance and video) and feminist and black arts movements. An emphasis will be placed on the transferral of power in the international art scene from Europe to the USA after 1945, but we will also look at art from Latin America, Eastern Europe, the UK and the Far East. Students will be provided with the historical background to the emergence of some really radically new approaches and will also be led through a variety of engaging exercises to help them begin to develop visual and critical skills. There is no expectation that students should have any background knowledge and it is designed for general interest rather than academic study.
