ART AND REVOLUTION/ART AND POLITICS : THE REVOLUTIONS OF THE 1960s and BEYOND

Contemporary artists all over the world are currently engaging with politics.
But there are precedents where artists reflected and defined the cultural language for some of history’s great turning points. This course looks at the art, music, and literature that evolved from several major revolutions and the responses to them.


The 1960s saw a series of cultural and social revolutions as hitherto marginalised
groups organised themselves. Feminism, African-American Civil Rights Movement, the student movement, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender groups all challenged the mainstream in the West. This was reflected in the transition from modernist to postmodernist aesthetics, the legacies of which persisted well into the 21st Century. This session traces some key artists of this period including Warhol, Nancy Spero, Judy Chicago, Mary Kelley, Ed Kienholz and others.
