390A: Tps:East Asian Modernisms
Modernism has often been viewed as an exclusively Western phenomenon in its origin. But how does our understanding of modernism shift when we consider the modernist art of East Asia? In fact, modernism is not a homogeneous or clearly definable thing or ideological conception. Rather, it takes on diverse and ambiguous formulations in different spaces and times. This course provides an opportunity to consider the multiplicities of modernism/modernity in East Asian countries - China, Korea, and Japan.
