This program will look at the Romantic movement of the 18th and 19th centuries and then turn that gaze upon our modern ways of making and looking at images. Romanticism's preoccupations often reflected the neuroses and fears of their time: bodily horror and transformation, decay, reverence for the power of the natural world, the ruins of antiquity and an overwhelming adoration of physical beauty. This program will use film and digital photography to answer just how and why these Romanticist themes have re-emerged as dominant themes in contemporary art, modern popular media and imagery (movies, TV, advertising, etc.) as well as the vernacular photography that makes up our current visual lexicon.
