PASJ 280 - Contemporary Performance Practices (4)

This required course for all Performing Arts and Social Justice majors will investigate the role of the artist in contemporary society. Through case studies of notable contemporary performance artists, students will critically examine the aesthetic, social, and political value systems within which artists create their work.  Within this context, students will learn to recognize their own belief systems, thereby adopting an approach to art-making that is driven by cultural consciousness and personal choice.  Prerequisite: PASJ 180-series.
