From the great auteurs in European filmmaking to the provocateurs of the contemporary art scene, this course examines artistic expression in European cinema and visual arts. What role does independent film and art movements play in 20th and 21st century Europe? How are aesthetics influenced by the changing political landscape? When do visual arts go beyond consumerism? We work on a case study of subversive art in Europe and meet with Danish directors to discuss film.
