Art 160 : ART 160 – ART & POLITICS

This multidisciplinary studio course will investigate the intertwined
histories of art and politics, the powerful relationship that contemporary
art and politics continue to share, and how artists strive to create
social change by responding directly to current affairs and global
political issues.
Class projects and lectures will explore the growing number of artists,
activists, and movements that are working together to change the
political landscape, and how art has historically helped produce
dissent and bring attention to issues and concerns that shape the
global community.
