Course Content (Syllabus)
The city, throughout the 20th century, has been the field of the most radical experimentation within the Architectural and Artistic avant-gardes. The continuous transformation of the city and the promise of freedom connected with the city made the metropolis the privileged field of architectural, artistic and socio-political experimentations of the avant-garde. It is the metropolitan life that releases a series of echoes, which motivate the challenges and the manifestos of the avant-garde in art and architecture but also all of their efforts to understand, interpret, capture and recapture of the city. The course Cities «Amplified» will examine these dynamic epeisodes in the history of space during the 20th century where architects, artists, filmmakers, creators from the applied arts and writers attempted radical revisions of urban space concocting visionary, radical and often "wonderful" proposals. The course will attempt a trip to the most original and exciting places in the 20th century: Dynamic Spaces, Shocking Spaces, Marginal Spaces, Desired Spaces, Imaginary Spaces, Subjective Spaces, Pleasurable Spaces, "Playful" Spaces, "Performative" Spaces, Exhibition Spaces, “Printed” Spaces, Spectacular Spaces, etc. During this course the examination of the ideas and proposals for the city will include views and proposals as they appear both in the history and theory of architecture and in the visual arts, in cinema, literature, the applied arts and printed press, as well as in politics and social thought. While the linear narrative of the history of the city of the 20th century will give way to a test complex and/or antithetical snapshots that intersect history in an attempt to examine the multiple narratives and representations of the city.
