ART-320: Collage & Assemblage

3 credit hours

From the European avant-garde movements in the early 20th century to culture jamming in the late 20th century, artists have long been interested in subverting existing objects, images, and technologies to alter mainstream narratives. In this course, students will consider ways to challenge existing contemporary norms through the creation of new work that speaks to the current cultural moment while utilizing a range of materials and technologies. Students will take into account contemporary interpretations of contradiction, juxtaposition, appropriation, and protest throughout their work, readings, and discussion.
