Seminar in Arts Activism
Professor Karen Finley
Arts Politics Students only*
*Two spaces are available for students in ITP.
This seminar will focus on developing our work, theory, and art into
a realized production. Each student will start with presenting his or
her ideas and goals of creating a public project. This may take the
form of public art, exhibition, performance, narrative but bringing
it to a goal of actualizing the work out of the school student world.
But the class is more than just bringing the art into the public
light. We will scrutinize and examine intent and where to bring a
production. Media, reviews, current events, intent, audience,
controversy, economics, politics and other issues and challenges that
is vital to a successful professional life. These connections and
awareness of the outside world out of school will be a reality check
of all the responsibilities of participating in culture.
The class is interested in original and dynamic thought, provoking
associative thinking and awareness. The class is designed to
transform and consider challenging your process and opinion. You are
encouraged to bring awareness of different approaches to create new
and borrowed strategies in cultural activism. The class is considered
process oriented and the professor is encouraging conceptual
principles. Process is encouraging original thought over guaranteed
