ART AND POLITICS
An Online Course by Node Center

[15% OFF ENROLLING BEFORE DECEMBER 31]

This course addresses the critical potential, ambivalences and contradictions of contemporary artistic projects that deal with socio-political content in different formats, both inside and outside the cultural institution.

Over four weeks, we will trace how artists have addressed such diverse issues as civil rights, humanitarian affairs, critique of capitalism, gender and sexuality discussions, historical revisionism, and more. We will take a historical-critical approach to a wide variety of case studies from Modernism, to the second half of the twentieth century to today, where works with political content are widely exhibited in museums, cultural centers, biennials, fairs, galleries and other spaces that make up contemporary art economics, creating sometimes contradictory panoramas of insertion and effectiveness.

Accompanied by rich visual material and recommended readings, this course is for curators, writers, artists and anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the relations between art and politics in contemporary visual art production.

*Video conferences every Thursday at 7pm CET. Recordings will be available in case you miss a live session!
