For decades, artists have explored the body as an instrument of political action. From figuration to performance and social practice, contemporary art abounds with strategies for mobilizing the body as a cipher and provocation. This course hybrid course will combine seminar discussion, independent research, and hands-on practicums. We will explore a range of practices from artists such as as Adrian Piper, Mary Kelly, Senga Nengudi, Jack Smith, James Luna, Pope.L, Ron Athey, Viva Ruiz, Xandra Ibarra, and texts by Jose Esteban Munoz, Fred Moten, Jennifer Doyle, Amelia Jones, Rizvana Bradley, Andre Lepecki, and others.
