Conversation
Modern and Contemporary Art: A Brief History Doç. Dr. Seda Yavuz

Speaker: Seda Yavuz

The sociological changes in the 19th century, especially in continental Europe, and their reflection on art will be studied with examples from Romanticism, Realism and Impressionism. Movements and trends in the first half of the 20th century will be discussed together with the gaps they have created in the form-content axis. We will also look at the changes that occurred from the 19th to the 2nd half of the 20th Century with the "center of art" moving from Paris, to New York
