MPM Education Classroom
The seminar was organized on the occasion of the exhibition Toys of the Avant-garde.
The acceptance of the avant-garde throughout the second half of the 20th century widely helped to underline the values of rejecting and destroying the modern legacy that these early 20th-century art movements had made their own, and which they used to oppose bourgeois aesthetics and ideology.
They had to rediscover the component elements of designing and constructing a new world in order to achieve a human ideal. The seminar examined the specific profile of these avant-garde utopias, by discussing their written manifestoes and analysing their most significant works.
5 and 5 November. Topics covered: The Concept of Utopia. Artists and the Ideal City: from Plato to Modern Times. From Renaissance Utopias to the Revolution of 1789 and 19th-century Socialist and Positivist Engineering By Félix Duque. Catedrático de Filosofía. Universidad Autónoma de Madrid
The seminar was coordinated by Luis Puelles, Lecturer of Aesthetics and Art Theory at the University of Malaga. With the collaboration of the Universidad de Málaga.
