This introductory course will focus on the intersection of aesthetics, politics, and history, and explore key themes in the art of Latin America. We will look at art spanning from the Pre-Colombian era through colonialism, struggles for independence, art during dictatorships, and end with globalization and contemporary art in Latin America. We will have the opportunity to look at critical and aesthetic theories from this region and investigate, with a critical eye, who has written its histories and how they have been constructed. The issues and influence of colonialism, imperialism, capitalism, globalization, race, class, and gender will be at the forefront of our discussions. No previous knowledge of the region or of art history and theory is necessary.
