A core goal of this course will be to practice considering artistic intent and production alongside historical forces, international shifts in culture, economies, and politics. Part of practicing this approach to “deep reading” across the arts means broadening what we consider to be literacies and fluencies: this will involve building a vocabulary with which to analyse art, openly discussing ideas and methods, communicating arguments, trusting the work of listening and learning, exploring how to ask questions we do not yet know how to pose. Meetings across each of the two terms that make up this six-credit course will vary: students can expect up to two contact points a week including one “lecture” and one (bi- weekly) “tutorial”. Content in the first semester will maintain a focus on Keywords—a long-standing heritage of this course in FFAR—and will pursue a sequence of participles in order to build a tool kit of methods of discussing art across disciplines and international, national and local movements. The second Winter semester follows an itinerary of current debates that artists are working despite of/through and alongside from climate change to surveillance to museum politics. During this course, all peers will gain a better understanding of keywords and concepts that mobilize and inspire artists and that shape practices and discussions across art disciplines. Furthermore, we will all develop communication skills, one of the cornerstones of the art school crucible: kindling for reading, writing, discussing, listening and critical thinking that will continue beyond the schedule of this syllabus.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
