ARCR 823 - The Arts of Peace and Conflict

3 credits
Explore and participate in visual response to violent conflict. From ancient mosaics to video games, the visual arts offer tangible evidence of the effects of war on contemporary culture. In this class we will investigate art historical trends related to conflict, and develop a collaborative project over the course of the semester to experience the transformative effects of social practice. Students will experiment with traditional media in addition to current principles and tools of social movement in order to engage with contemporary practice of inventive reaction to violent confrontation.  Individual research, development and realization of a team project are the cornerstones of this interdisciplinary program of study.
