When we think of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, or Stalinist USSR, we don’t immediately think of images of architectural commissions or public sculpture, yet cultural production in all of the major world powers during the 1930s and 1940s reflects crucial elements of their societies and political ideologies.

This class will explore the art and architecture of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, the Stalinist Soviet Union, and the United States and explore the fate of modern art during this tumultuous time.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
