Content

This unit investigates theoretical discourses surrounding visual arts practice post-1989. Events of 1989 such as the fall of the Berlin Wall (hastening the end of the Cold War Period), Tiannamen Square, the beginnings of the World Wide Web, AIDS activism, the Exxon Valdez oil spill and the aftermaths of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster mark the year as a seminal one in historical, political, social and cultural terms. It also marks the emergence of a new era of shifting borders, the triumph of the virtual (and burgeoning digital media), re-considerations of notions of gender and identity, and the predominance of a postmodern view that held fragmentation and pluralism over the grand narratives of progress. The period also challenges further the boundaries of perceived high and low art.
