PIC-323 Going Baroque

3 Credits

The term "baroque" denotes excessive ornamentation, curls, folds, and twisting surfaces, as well as a historical period known for its extravagant style. We will examine both the historical period designated "the Baroque" through literature, art, architecture, philosophy and history, alongside the "baroque" considered as a style that persists throughout history, associated especially with postmodernism and its embrace of multiplicity. Baroque texts will be transformed through creative assignments into new forms across a range of media.
