Berlin remains one of the last bastions of bohemia, attracting creatives looking for the elusive combination of space and time. 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, art intervention, and social critique of space. Working individually and in teams, 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.
