Art and Propaganda in China

This course on art and propaganda in China examines painting, photography, sculpture, film, mixed-media works, propaganda posters, and performance art from the mid-19th century to the contemporary period. We will unpack how transcultural exchanges shaped the trajectory of Chinese arts; the roles new mediums played in changing Chinese art and national identity; the impact of politics on the development of visual culture; and the varied styles and movements that burgeoned since the post-Mao period. This course provides students with a firm understanding of the development of modern and contemporary Chinese art and visual culture within social, political, and historical contexts. General Education (GE) code: IM
