Course: Art as Politics

Art as Politics is an online course, that was prompted by the urgency to engage in collective thinking through, learning about, and imagining critical, politically-informed artistic practices that grasp—and intervene into—the present. Taught by Maria Hlavajova, BAK’s general & artistic director.
