Please read: Jackie Wullschlager, “Van Doesburg at Tate Modern,” Financial Times,; Available at: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/711772d8-11e4-11df-b6e3-00144feab49a.htmlAnd explore: De Stijl, An online exhibit at the Tate Museum; Available at: http://www.tate.org.uk/learn/online-resources/glossary/d/de-stijl
Then discuss: You can approach this assignment in a few different ways. You might choose to look through the different pages (I like the article discussing Grids and Modernism at: http://www.tate.org.uk/research/publications/tate-papers/12/the-grid-as-a-checkpoint-of-modernity), and then watch Curator Michael White’s discussion of Mondrian’s work in the Video, or start with the video and then go to the works of art. After doing this describe some part of this exhibit (I especially like Piet Mondrian’sComposition C (No.III) with Red, Yellow and Blue) and discuss how it reflects the theme of Technological Fundamentalism from lecture and Misa.
