What Now, America?, 2009

The related topics of politics and activism permeate many courses at SAIC in both the studio and liberal arts and art history arenas. Key to an arts education of the 21st century is a theoretical understanding of power as well as resistance and how these forces can manipulate, direct, and/or inspire a rich variety of creative practice. Please see your advisor to discuss related course listings that pertain to Politics and Activisms.
