Special Topics: Socially Engaged Art
This project-based studio course is for artists and designers who define their practice as socially engaged or want to refocus their practice in the interest of social justice. The changing reality of what constitutes and who controls the public domain and recent debates in public practices is examined in the process of art making, including interventions and culture jamming, as well as relational and tactical strategies. In addition to in-depth critique and dialogue, course provides technical support, assists with research, views artist projects, and examines the shift “from studio to situation.” Students must have the desire to work outside of the isolation of their studio and are encouraged to have a project in mind before starting this course.
