Course: Art as Politics [Rerun on Request]

Due to popular demand, BAK Public Studies offers a rerun of the online course Art as Politics, taking place on the following dates: 29 June & 2, 6, 9, 13, and 16 July 2020.
This digital extension of BAK Public Studies, taught by Maria Hlavajova, is prompted by the urgency to continue collective thinking through, learning about, and imagining critical, politically-informed artistic practices that grasp—and intervene into—the present. Please note: this Open Call is now closed and the course is fully booked.
