Description: This course investigates post-1945 Japanese art and architecture, contextualized as part of the nation's modern history, and with a particular focus on the socially and politically turbulent decades of the 1950s and 60s. Using artistic collectivism as a methodology, the course examines a wide range of collaborations in visual art and architecture, as seen in exhibitions, performances, and publications. For each lecture, Graduate Students will be assigned additional readings. They will write an annotated bibliography of all these readings to be turned in at the end of the semester. We will meet for an additional every two or three weeks to discuss interpretive and methodological problems and ideas associated with the readings. Graduate Students will be expected to complete all the requirements of the class in addition to writing a substantial research paper due at the end of the semester.
