Nothing will be the same after 2020. This moment of social and political upheaval in the midst of a global pandemic places our world on the brink of total collapse as capitalism and its neoliberal mandates shift ever more to the right. In a country that is grasping at power ever more violently, the Black, Brown, Indigenous, Immigrant, and Trans communities who experience the brunt of its violence and death, rattle the cages of their subjugation. Class discussions will inform how we act both collectively and in our individual practices. We will ask if traditional art mediums suffice, and if not, then how does the creative faculty that precedes the selection of a medium manifest itself? What are the spaces for presenting and engaging with our responses and interventions? Students will produce two projects – both individually and collectively – that engage with these questions. In order to seriously contend with our current realities, and to dare to imagine a way forward we will cover such thinkers as Abdoumaliq Simone, Ruth Wilson Gilmore, Grace Lee Boggs and Fred Moten. We will also delve into the work of artists like Paul Chan, Cameron Rowland and Gustave Courbet.
