DISE-1204 History of Design I

The course begins with a contextual introduction to the historical study, including a broad vision of the concept of art and design in interaction with social and political phenomena. The course makes a general analysis of these expressions, with the Industrial Revolution and Enlightenment in Europe and other Western societies as a starting point until mid-20th century, with some references to contemporary art. It compares theory and representation, form and concept. In the case of avant-garde art, art pieces will be analyzed from the rupture, from the hybridization with graphic art, industrial design, architecture, fashion and advertisement.
