This course examines global postmodern and contemporary art from the 1950s to the present day. It will discuss transformations in media, authorship, spectatorship, display, and distribution,
along with the globalisation of art through art markets, biennales, artistic networks, and museum franchises. Students will learn about key developments such as Pop, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Performance, Computer Art, and the Social Turn, with particular emphasis

engage with relevant debates concerning economic and cultural globalisation, transcultural exchange, Indigeneity, and postcolonial politics.
