ARTH 4405 Vienna 1900 (Spring: 3 )
An analysis of the interdisciplinary crossfire that is Vienna 1900, concentrating on the interaction of aesthetics, culture, music, politics, philosophy, and psychology. Special emphasis on how the issues raised by the painting (Klimt, Kokoschka, Schiele) and architecture (Loos, Hoffmann, Wagner, Olbrich) of the period intersect with other domains, e.g. the philosophy of Wittgenstein, the music of Schoenberg and Strauss, the psychoanalysis of Freud, and the writings of Karl Kraus and Hugo von Hofmannsthal.
