What is the relationship between learning, artmaking, and creating a more just world? Where do experimental approaches to art and radical approaches to the classroom overlap? How might art help us to unlearn inherited structures of domination? In this course, students will investigate these questions by reading and discussing classic texts about the relationship between art, education, and societal transformation by authors such as Paolo Freire, bell hooks, and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. In addition, they will put these texts into conversation with artists who work at the intersection of art and pedagogy (such as Kameelah Janan Rasheed and Nao Bustamante) and devise their own workshops for young people at Henry Street Settlements/Abrons Arts Center in the Lower East Side.
