Course: Gothic to Goth
October 21 - October 22
From Mary Shelley to Marilyn Manson, the term ‘Gothic’ has been enigmatic, combining horror and romance, darkness and mystery. The Romantic Movement’s rejection of Enlightenment reason embraced the unknown, serving as inspiration for the Goth subculture of the 1980s. This course will trace the influences of the Gothic in art, literature, and fashion, in the work of such artists as Henry Fuseli, Horace Walpole and Alexander McQueen.
