Political Ceramics (CER4210.01)

Barry Bartlett

This class will investigate the nature of making objects that address current political issues relating to the upcoming presidential election. Students will be asked to explore, identify culturally held meanings, values, and imagery stemming from the political discussion of our national debate leading up to the November election. From these discussions students will create work that represents their own beliefs and reflections in ceramic form. The class will study historical and contemporary artists who have used political issues to inform and shape their work. Research will not be limited to the ceramic medium. Students will be expected to research relevant artists and make a presentation, as well as to complete a politically based ceramic body of work.
