Art History (Art, Politics, Transgression, 20th Century Avant-Garde)

This Master's is concerned with outlining and critically evaluating the concept of the 'avant-garde' both theoretically and in terms of its applicability to representative areas of 20th-century art; dealing with art from the early 20th century to the present, students investigate concepts such as historical avant-garde, neo-avant-garde, and post-avant-garde, paying close attention to the theorists who have elaborated these ideas.
