PIC 346 - Unboxed: Subversion Strategies
This course integrates materials from intersections of applied arts, philosophy, pop culture and literature. Students will examine works of art from all disciplines as well as cultural artifacts, investigate how they reflect dominant modes of thought—such as our compulsive creation of binaries, the need for cohesive narratives and chronological organization—and look at how the chosen works interrogate and subvert them. Students then create (or revise existing) works inspired by/reflecting the discussed strategies.
