The expression “Your mind is a house. And you are just living in the kitchen” is an invitation to explore your consciousness in a much more thorough way. Using the mind/home metaphor, we will observe, study and re-discover our own physical habitats as the subject and source of our work, as well as the final display support for them. Throughout art history, the domestic setting has been a crucial site and recurring subject of a wide range of artistic production: associated with architecture and the body (Heidi Bucher); depicted as an ideal site for psychological reflection and revelation (Moyra Davey, Thembinkosi Hlatshwayo); a site of gender and race identity production, interrogation and politics (Carrie Mae Weems, Womanhouse, Lin Tianmiao, Robert Gober); and the place par excellence for radical acts of care and intimacy (Nan Goldin, Jessica Jackson Hutchins). An important goal in this course is to develop resourcefulness by diving deep in what we already have. In that spirit, weekly prompts will focus on different areas of the house that will need to be developed and resolved by a wide range of materials and media readily available such as furniture and objects, food and clothes, combined with basic and easily manipulable art materials like cardboard, plaster, clay, wire, papier-maché and fabric, in order to produce photographs, videos and sound or performances, sculptures and installations. Each session will be broken up into a dynamic combination of lecture on artists’ works, supporting texts and videos, presentation of the week’s prompt, individual and group meetings, off-screen working time, and a final reassembly for discussion.
