Credits: 3

Animals have held a significant position in both the history of art as well as the evolution of human sociality, so much so that in philosophy, animalism is a theory according to which we are human animals. This course proposes to address the role of the animal in art, not simply as a domesticated creature satiating human desire but participating in a complicated set of evolving signifiers through which we can begin to unpack the human. We will not think from an assumed ethical stance in regards to animal rights but will work to understand the complicated economies and compromises at play in the preservation of species diversity in late capitalism. This class takes an interdisciplinary approach to making work and ways to consider questions of liveness but will focus on production in photography, video and performance.
