Performance/Social Activism

Radical Humanity: Performance and Social Activism
In this course we will cover the history of performance art and the dynamic power of activism; we will focus primarily on the collaborative creation of performance infused with a social conscience. Content will range from political science to women and gender studies to civil rights. Looking at art-making through the eyes of pivotal historical figures in addition to contemporary artists, we will gather techniques to develop solo and group performances. Readings, films, journal writing, and studio research will be an integral part of this highly experiential class.
