Summary

During the summer of 2022, the Individual Project Work 1, will explore socially engaged arts practice with specific focus on questions of place and communities. The course will support students to develop projects (either as individuals or in partnership with other students enrolled on the course). Given the circumstances of COVID19 students will be encouraged to critically respond to the challenges and opportunities of arts in the public realm at a time of social distancing.

About

This course extends exploration of socially engaged arts practice by taking an approach oriented to more-than-human realms and art. This radical new approach to the social, to place, and to art through the “more-than-human” is a research-led and collaborative framework realised in partnership with colleagues from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, and the nomadic platform The Forest Curriculum. This year the teaching team comprises: Åsa Sonjasdotter, Katarina Stenbeck, Forrest Curriculum (Abhijan Toto and Pujita Guha), Behjat Omer Abdulla, and Magnus Haglund.
