Less is a Bore - Debating Minimalism in Art and Architecture

Bilingual Seminar IAAD/Diplom/Master, 2 SWS

The class will reflect theoretical positions around minimalism in art and architecture.

We will look at minimalist works in painting, sculpture, land art, architecture and music, try to understand and debate the theoretical positions that have been associated to them in the 20th and 21st century.

Students are expected to read texts, give presentations or submit papers about a chosen topic, and participate in class discussions.

Large portions of the relevant literature are in English, therefore some or all of the class sessions may be in English language, but presentations and papers can be in German as well.
