The two-semester course offers an introduction to the history of modern and contemporary art and architecture. Motivated by questions of the current discourse, central topics and themes are discussed. Themes such as “labor”, “fear”, or “beauty” are used to focus on various historical connections. Architecture is considered as a scene of cultural dynamics as well as an indicator of social, economic, and political conflicts. It is analyzed and depicted as an object, which facilitated the perception of historical change. The course "Lehrcanapé - Have a seat" (one hour) is part of the course and treats alternative methods of teaching and learning.
