What is the role of culture in shaping Athenian identity through the ages? How has Athens been repositioned from being considered the cradle of Western civilization to the new Berlin? The class is an analysis of the fundamentals of the cultural industry (visual arts, cinema, theater, music, dance) as seen through the example of the Athens paradigm. Through the examination of case studies, best practices and theory the class will cover topics such as how Greek cultural policy is reflected in the missions and operations of cultural organizations, the evolution of the definition of the museum, the development of cultural tourism and cultural management as a vehicle towards national identity reforming. The class will be reinforced with talks by local professionals from the culture industry and on-site visits. It will culminate in a class-wide exercise in planning and implementing the exhibition of the Picturing Athens class at the end of the term.
