HLVB10292U Modern Nordic Arts and Culture 1: Modern Nordic Art, Visual Culture, Architecture and Urbanity

Volume 2018/2019

BA Elective: Modern Nordic Arts and Culture


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.
