Art history is actually one of the more interesting topics that you can learn about in school or college. Art changes as nations and civilizations change, so it is fascinating to be able to chart the progression and to see just how devastating the Great European Civil Wars of the 20th century were.
They both led to a complete collapse in idealism and even in the idea that art should be beautiful.
A big red pill for young students is when they see the complete collapse in art, and when they compare modern art to the art of their supposedly backwards and ignorant ancestors. It can really get the noggin joggin – or at least, it could have in the past. Now, Yale has decided to do away with intro to art history courses, and that means all other universities are soon to follow along and ban it as well.
Yale will stop teaching a storied introductory survey course in art history, citing the impossibility of adequately covering the entire field — and its varied cultural backgrounds — in one course.
Decades old and once taught by famous Yale professors like Vincent Scully, “Introduction to Art History: Renaissance to the Present” was once touted to be one of Yale College’s quintessential classes. But this change is the latest response to student uneasiness over an idealized Western “canon” — a product of an overwhelmingly white, straight, European and male cadre of artists.
This spring, the final rendition of the course will seek to question the idea of Western art itself — a marked difference from the course’s focus at its inception. Art history department chair and the course’s instructor Tim Barringer told the News that he plans to demonstrate that a class about the history of art does not just mean Western art. Rather, when there are so many other regions, genres and traditions — all “equally deserving of study” — putting European art on a pedestal is “problematic,” he said.
These people lack self-awareness and literally talk in memes. “Problematic” is a vaginal word that reminds any red-blooded man of the visceral disgust they feel when they see another man being hen-pecked by a gaggle of irate harpies – which is basically what the college experience is defined by.
I can’t stress this enough though: most of the knowledge that you could have gleaned in college you can get directly from the source with the help of the internet. Even now, YouTube is filled to the brim with incredible lectures and self-made labor of love documentaries by incredibly talented people that anyone with a modicum of curiosity can watch for themselves for free.
Colleges are indoctrination facilities that give you a certificate proving you’ve been thoroughly brainwashed that you present to potential employers as proof that you will be compliant should they hire you. Seeing as no one appears to be hiring Millennials anymore, there doesn’t really seem to be a need for these diploma mills, does there?
We really would be better off quarantining every single university and every single student until we can figure out what the hell is going on.
