Double Taking and Troublemaking: Socially Engaged Practice as Intentionally Disruptive Art

Thursday, October 05, 2017; 4:00-6:00pm
MIT Building 9-255

This conversation-style session brings together current visiting artists and students from different fields interested in the theory, history and practice of visual culture, public pedagogy, photography and/or socially engaged art. We will initiate the construction of a collaborative socially engaged artwork using mobile phones, social media and digital photography. This seminar is informed by scholarship and theoretical renderings of socially engaged art and participatory inquiry by contemporary scholars, critics and artists.
