HUMN 311 - S094: Visual Art Seminar

Course content: 

Topic: The Beat Aesthetic: Poetics & Politics in Post-War American Culture/Counterculture
HUMN 311 course deals with the art ... painting, poetry, novels, films, music ... as well as the social politics and hipness generated by outsiders, by being “cool”, by being “Beat”. The term Beat or Beat Generation comes from street talk of the late 1940s. It meant beaten. “The world against me” said Herbert Hunke, who introduced the term to William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac. The Beat Aesthetic studies the growth of Beat counterculture in America that gave rise to jazz musicians like Charlie “Bird” Parker and writers such as Diane De Prima, Leroy Jones (Amira Baraka), Kerouac and Ginsberg. Other artists covered in the course include John Cassavetes, Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, Laurie Anderson, The Fugs, Anais Nin, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, The New York Dolls, Jean-Michel Basquait and Tom Waits. Dig it.
