L01 Art-Arch 4005Time, Work, Play: Art, Design, Urban Practice3.0 Units
Description:This seminar-co-taught by faculty in two different schools (Arts and Sciences and Sam Fox School/College of Architecture) investigates the interrelations of three of the key categories of experience-time, work, and play-- in the 20th century and into the 21st. It does so through the lens of historians, artists, theorists and philosophers, and urbanists. Using a variety of visual forms-- from painting to film, animation, found objects, performance, and conceptual art--and spatial and design practices, we will test, analyze, and possibly reconfigure specific propositions and practices over the past century concerning the relationship of time, work, and play. The seminar begins with a historical prelude on pre-industrial time forms and on the impact of mechanization and industry on older habits and experiential forms shaped around pre-modern conceptions of time, and proceeds through a series of case studies, organized topically. Bringing together students from design, urban planning, art history, and other fields, we seek to pry apart fixed ideas about time, labor, productivity, leisure and play, and to see aesthetic and spatial practices as fields of radical experimentation in new social forms. Prerequisites: Intro to Western Art (L01 113) or Intro to Modern Art (L01 215); one 300-level course in Art History preferred; or permission of instructor.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
