Border Culture: Globalization and Contemporary Art

Listed in: Art and the History of Art, as ARHA-91


Lorne Falk (Section 03)


This course will look at the phenomenon of globalization and contemporary art through the lens of border culture, a term that refers to the "deterritorialized" nature of an image when it is removed from its context or place of origin. Its themes include borders within the realms of language, gender, ideology, race, and genres of cultural production. Border culture emerged in the 1980s in Tijuana/San Diego in a community of artists who had spent many years living outside their homelands or living between two cultures—an experience that today might well represent the nature of contemporary life as well as art praxis.
