Topic: Global activist arts
Global Activist Arts focuses on the relationship between art, activist politics and digital technologies. We will explore performances, occupations, and experiments that bring diverse people together in collectivities and social movements that are organized around globally crucial issues of our times such as inequality and the environment. Reading reflections of artists, curators, scholars, human rights activists and others, students will develop a language with which to talk, write and engage with art as a significant dimension of global politics. Students will be required to examine and enact particular instances of the interface between activism and art and the tactics that give it meaning.
