Este curso es para activistas, artistas y pensadores que deseen entender mejor el cambio social y participar en él. El contenido del curso enfoca en la coincidencia prolífica y emocionante entre el arte socialmente comprometido y prácticas culturales generadas por recientes movimientos sociales en todo el mundo. Más que evaluar la eficacia política de actividades como el luto, la escucha, la organización, el baile, o la fiesta, las conferencias examinan tales actividades culturales al lado y dentro de la práctica artística contemporánea.

Rather than assess the political efficacy of activities like mourning, listening, organizing, dancing, or partying, the lectures examine such cultural activities next to, and within, contemporary art practice.
