Art Beyond Borders

Taking the exhibition Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists Remake American Art, 1925–1945 as a point of departure, this course explores how artists challenge conventional ideas of citizenship and belonging while creating new forms of community. If art has, on one hand, been thought of as a nation’s most precious heritage, it has also provided a powerful means for reflecting on and reimagining forms of political inclusion and exclusion.
