SPAN 55.07 Revolution & Art in Mexico

This course explores the cultural production of the Mexican Revolution (1910-1940) through an analysis of essays, literature, visual art, and cinema. It focuses on how the revolutionary ethos entered into relation with art, race, gender, religion and socialism in order to conceive a new social order and new forms of cultural imagination. The course content provides a clear understanding of the diverse set of interests and ideas that shaped the revolutionary process and continue to play an important role in contemporary Mexico. At the same time, the close examination of revolutionary representations sheds light on the problematic relations between aesthetics and politics, thought and praxis in modern societies. Works by Orozco, Rivera, Campobello, Vasconcelos, Flores Magón, Azuela, Maples Arce, among others.
