The aim of the course is a concise history of Modern Greek Art and culture from the 16th up to the 21th century. This will give the participants the opportunity to understand the evolution in Modern Greek Art via the local social, cultural, ideological and aesthetic context. The course will introduce the participants to the historical, socio-cultural themes in Greece within an artistic framework and will relate these to the worldwide contemporary aesthetics. Moreover, the course will try to enable participants to recognize and engage with artistic response to the political, economic, sociological and technological influences which have taken place within, and continue to influence, the Greek society.

The course is focused on the exploration of:

  • the historic movements in Modern Greek Art and its relationship to the socio-cultural context of the times.
  • the relationship between key historic developments in Modern Greek Art and contemporary issues and debates.
  • the political, economic, social and technological influences on Modern Greek Art within historic and contemporary global contexts.
