ARTH 588: Current Issues in Art – Technology, Art, Politics
TTh 12:30 PM – 1:45 PM / Instructor: Levine

This seminar-style course will critically examine the relationships between technology and art in modern culture, with particular emphasis on the implicit and explicit politics of such relationships. We will explore histories of art, aesthetics, scientific thinking, and mechanical production as ongoing struggles over notions of social progress and emancipation, alienation and domination. We will think through the realities and myths of technological devices as tools by which people extend themselves out into the world, connecting, (re)producing, and engaging with sensual, intellectual, and material apparatuses. This course will focus on the aesthetic politics of technology—the possibilities and limits of critically engaging in the making and distribution of images and objects, information and knowledge, and the challenges posed by and to artistic production.


ARTH 982: Seminar in American Art – Media and Materiality
W 2:30 PM – 5:10 PM / Instructor: Cao

This is a course about matter. At one end of our spectrum of interrogation will be material culture, from artistic masterpieces to mundane, everyday goods. How do objects embody cultural, social, or psychological systems? What modes of exchange do they facilitate or hinder? At the other end of our spectrum is media, which we often assume to be abstract and immaterial (especially now that our lives are more virtual than ever). This course will attempt to make visible the materiality of intangible networks and interrogate the objecthood of technologies.

Studies of materiality, or the agency of matter, has challenged the anthropocentric legacy of many academic disciplines, but many recent theoretical interventions also tend to be untethered from actual artifacts. This course will explore an interdisciplinary set of ideas emerging from thing theory, new materialism, and media archeology and consider their methodological potential for the study of artworks and other material objects. We will examine matter as malleable, portable, and destructible as well as subject to circulation, transformation, and translation. Each week’s reading will include theoretical texts paired with object-based scholarship. Students will research a single artifact throughout the term and be expected to complete oral presentations and a seminar paper on the basis of their ongoing research. While many of readings will concern Euro-American topics from the eighteenth century to the present, student projects may engage with any geographical region or historical period.
