Existentialism and Art and Culture
Through literature, visual art, film, and theory, this course explores existentialist lines of thought and their implications for modern day life. Existentialism is a philosophical and cultural movement critical of social illusions and self-deceptions that thwart genuine freedom. Exploring experiences of anxiety, futility, and isolation, analyzing the nature of the individual's relation to society, morality and religion, and arguing for the irrational nature of reality, existentialist theorists and artists seek to promote freedom, creativity, authenticity.
