Spend two weeks this Summer studying public space art in Berlin. This hybrid seminar/studio course will introduce students to the history and current discourse surrounding contemporary public art, including site-specific art, participatory art, new genre art, and more. Working individually and in groups, students will create site-specific public space interventions which explore and respond to the politics and poetics of place. Students will also receive a hands-on introduction to the Berlin contemporary art scene through guided visits to artist studios, galleries, and other cultural sites. No previous background or training in studio art is required.
