LALC 300 Artists Against the System
Cross-listed with SPAN 380-02.There have always been rebel artists. In this course we will explore several cases (studying both texts and contexts) in the Spanish-speaking world of artists who through their work have fought censorship and other forms of oppression. We will study primarily works of literature, but will also consider examples of visual and performing art works that have received politicized receptions. Taught in Spanish.
