crosslisted as: ARTH 596, CIMS 596
instructor(s):
R 1:30-4:30 pm

An experimental class for artists and scholars.  Organized around a series of case studies of artists, collectives, infrastructures, and curatorial projects, the course includes:  in-class discussion and viewing; workshops with class visitors; site visits; participation in small reading groups.  In the first half of the class, students will complete some short assignments.  In addition, students will complete a final project that is intentionally open in terms of form.  The project, which can be collective or individual in nature, will enable an in-depth material investigation of one of the threads of the class.
