Most of the modern issues under discussion and the cult
of modernist, experimental art are an outcome of the
American art produced in the post-1960 period.
Initially, the course will introduce an overview of the
New York School Painting, Minimalism and Pop Art at
large. Subsequently, the post-1960 art movements such
as Body Art, Performance Art, Electronic Art, Feminist
Art, New Expressionism and Appropriation Art will be
discussed with respect to the social and political
background of the period.
