213.265 Contemporary Art Projects J (15 credits)

Engagement with new thinking in contemporary art research through a specific lecturer-led project.

Note(s): Project for 2017: Conceptualisms, conspiracies, and counter-histories with Martin Patrick
This project presents as its focus how contemporary art practice intersects with the 'real world' and confronts the art/life divide. Selected current and historical works will be examined from a revisionist perspective to act as fuel for written and practice-based responses. Potential topics to be addressed include: punk and noise, tactical media, performance art, Fluxus, Beat, and Hippie culture, collaborations, communes, public interventions, hoaxes and pranks, independent comics, activism, blogs, social practice, zines, mail art, and other aspects of visual culture, especially those not always taken seriously in an academic setting.
