Social Practices in Art (DA4103.01)

Robert Ransick

In this course we examine the history of social practice and focus in on how artists are moving out of the studio and into the public realm with their work.  Social practices in art incorporates many diverse strategies from interactive media, online networks, public discourse, activism, manifestos, street interventions, social sculpture, design, performance, open systems and more. Special attention is paid to how media and technology are impacting and shifting current practice. Students will work collaboratively on projects focused off-campus that critically engage topics pertinent to this moment in history and are situated in the public sphere — local or global, online or offline. There are lectures, reading assignments, studio projects and critiques during the course.
