Some of the most well known contemporary artists have made their careers highlighting prejudice in specific communities worldwide such as William Kentridge who documented the inequities of apartheid in South Africa. Because social justice concerns as well as identity issues drive the creation of many art and design works today, SAIC offers a number of courses that seek to ask important questions about class, race, and ethnicity in Chicago and around the world. Please see your advisor to discuss related course listings that pertain to this area called Class, Race, Ethnicity.
