Modern Frames: European Art and Cinema
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits
From the great auteurs in European filmmaking to the provocateurs of the contemporary art scene, this course examines artistic expression in European cinema and visual arts. What role does independent film and art movements play in 20th and 21st century Europe? How are aesthetics influenced by the changing political landscape? When do visual arts go beyond consumerism? We work on a case study of subversive art in Europe and meet with Danish directors to discuss film.
Core Course Study Tours
This program travels on Study Tours to the following destinations:
Early in the semester, you delve into your academic focus during Core Course Week, in which you travel on a short Study Tour for three days in Denmark or a neighboring country, combined with a two-day seminar in Copenhagen. Later in the semester, you travel again with your Core Course on a week-long Study Tour in Europe.
While on tour, theories learned in the classroom come to life by meeting with professionals and experts in your field who contribute to furthering your understanding of course topics. Study Tours are hands-on and experiential, combining theory with practice, and expose you to additional cultural perspectives. You have the opportunity to visit sites and experts in your field of interest that you may not otherwise have access to.
