X-Studio: Performing Abjection

Spring 2021

Taught By: Yve Laris Cohen

Section: A

CRN: 3303

Credits: 3

This performance art studio course takes as its starting point Julia Kristeva’s conception of the abject as neither subject nor object, yet constitutive of subjecthood. Moving from psychoanalytic approaches to abjection (repression, perversion, phobia, desire, disgust) to considerations of disability, racialization, and national identity, students will construct live works that lure and repel their viewers. Readings by Kristeva, Karen Shimakawa, and Jennifer Doyle will animate performance assignments. Students will explore bodily abjection, from vomit to the corpse; inhabit cast-off sites; and study a number of historic performance works that elicit discomfort and revulsion.

Open to: All University undergraduate students. Some seats have been reserved for BFA Fine Arts students

X-Studio: Scripting Identity

Fall 2020

Taught By: Andrea Geyer

Section: A

CRN: 3405

Credits: 3

Scripts can be used for videos, performances, for reading a painting, making a drawing or acting within an installation. This studio class will be focused on the role that scripts can play in creating artworks as well as how artworks themselves can operate as a script. Students working in all genres are welcome to participate and develop artworks motivated by the idea of a script. With a particular focus on identity, history and power, scripts in textual, visual, audible and other iterations will be considered through the study of contemporary and historical artworks.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students.
