HART 335 The History of Art History Select Term:
This course attempts to give a history of art through the eyes of historians and theoreticians of western art. We will start with the Renaissance by looking at "what is re-born" and "what is classical?" We will then consider art in relation to aesthetics and philosophy with a distinction of historiographical and museological art histories. The double roots of style and its binary logic will allow us to talk about how we present and re-present art in a classroom. In the second part of the class, we will return to modern renderings of art, of its exhibition and consumption. We will talk about "what is modern and modernism" and their relation to politics of vision. Contemporary theorizations of art history will involve discussions on semiotics, psychoanalysis, identity politics, and deconstruction.
