BA Elective: Modern Nordic Arts and
The purpose of the course is to provide a survey of basic issues
in art history and visual culture in the Nordic countries since the
late 19th century (including architecture and urban studies).
The lectures draw attention to a wide variety of methodologies
including analytical case studies of specific works of art or
other empirical materials as well as more theoretical discussions
of different critical perspectives on visual culture, architecture
and urban studies. Questioning the nature of what might be
considered ’Nordic’, the lectures also highlight the interaction of
arts and culture of the Nordic countries with Europe and the rest
of the world.
