Low culture, high culture. High art, low art. Distinction? Interplay? Market? Politics? In this creative practice literary seminar, we’ll be examining and exploring Lo-Fi text/media, text/sound, text/performance, text/image iterations of creative writing. Our academic launchpads will include cave art, glyphs, radical printmaking, Fluxus, Pop, NYC’s East Village, Graffiti, Punk, and Internet Culture. A span of guests and readings will keep diversity, inclusion, and artistic daring at the forefront of our discussion. In our (mostly weekly) creative assignments (fiction and non-fiction), we’ll take on, for example, Xeroxing, puppets, paper arts, poem objects, performance directives, memoir videos, receipt diaries, Fisher Price, archival and advertising source materials.
