ART 275 AQX - Graphic Design History

Minimum Credit(s) Awarded: 4
Maximum Credit(s) Awarded: 4

This class offers the student an art historical introduction to the History of Graphic Design. Emphasis will be placed on the social and historical contexts of typography, graphic imagery, and design. Ancient to pre-modern design will be considered, although focus will be given to key Bauhaus artists and designers. At the core of this class will be the Bauhaus as a turning point in the history of design education; in 1919, the Bauhaus accepted both female and male applicants. We will examine at length the role of the Bauhaus amidst the promise of equal rights between the sexes within the history of graphic design. Students will produce a significant research paper addressing the unique attributes of the Bauhaus as an educational model, and ways in which theories of gender enable us to better understand Graphic Design History.

Offered Fall

Prerequisite(s): ENG 110  or W cornerstone.
