Synopsis: Looking across a broad range of mediums, including film and photography, students will examine the range of practices which erupted out of the postwar circumstances, through to the dissipation of modernism and the emergence of postmodernism. The influence of 'theory' and political ideology on practice and the objects and images of artists and designers. The challenge to the boundaries between high and low art, and art and design. The role and relationship of Australian art and design to these circumstances.
