The course presents a series of preparatory lessons aimed at defining the guidelines of the history of contemporary art. In particular, preparatory lessons are planned to define the guidelines of the history of contemporary art from impressionism to the most recent experiences. During the lessons we provide, through the analysis of some basic figures and joints, the contexts, the foundational texts, the works, the main interpretations that allow the student an adequate approach to the problems of contemporary art, to its fundamental concepts , to the protagonists, to the new languages, to the new hermeneutical models involved, to the new technologies.
