Seminar. Reading and Studying Art Since 1900 Together

6 February – 28 May 2016
Saturdays 13:00 to 15:00

DESCRIPTION

Garage Library continues the series of seminars dedicated to reading and discussing Art Since 1900: Modernism, Antimodernism, Postmodernism.

The Russian translation of Art Since 1900 was published in October 2015 and became a sensation on the Russian art and intellectual scene.

In October and December 2015 Garage Library organised a series of seminars titled “Reading and Studying Art Since 1900 Together”.

The second series of seminars will continue the discussion of the chapters devoted to the first half of the 20th century, focusing on the questions raised in the theoretical part of the book that looks into the period starting from Vienna Secession and ending with British New Brutalism. These chapters trace the development of new trends and movements in art in the historical and social context defined by two world wars, revolutions, the forming of a new world order and the beginning of globalization processes.

The seminar is open to anyone interested in developing a better understanding of 20th-century art. 

Seminar participants will read and then discuss the chapters, and the most active will get free copies of several books published by Garage and Ad Marginem from 2012 to 2016.
