Through the framework of Everyday Life, this course will structure artistic practices as refined tools to trace, highlight and discern various social and political (dis)continuities that are seemingly imperceptible and yet embedded within the sphere of our everyday lives.
The course will engage students with certain frames of practice and theory, enabling them to develop critical and creative tools to understand and articulate the nuanced politics of everyday life. As a Visual Arts course, the students will be facilitated towards exploring and expressing their everyday lives as a storehouse for concern and research. Through the medias of mass-production and mass circulation, students will be urged to excavate everyday life. Students will be urged to explore and create visuals, namely through the media of drawing, photography, found materiality, moving images, sound, visual and material formations of written language through poetry and prose, print or digital channels of media. The thrust of the course will be to encourage students to frame and create a ‘body’ of artistic works that bring out clarity, positions, language on everyday life.
