IN PROCESS. PROJECT TASK TEACHING BASED ON THE WORKS OF ANTONI MUNTADAS
Can contemporary art can be used as a cross-curricular resource in the classroom? We will try to answer this question throughout this theoretical-practical workshop where we will be working with different creation processes used in contemporary art. Based on the exhibit by Antoni Muntadas at the CGAC, Strategies of Displacement, we will explore some of the concepts present in the work by this artist to develop activities and processes that can be carried out in the classroom in the context of project task teaching.
We will be working with some tools that are specific to contemporary art, such as reusing images, maps, files, instructions associated to performance and spatial strategies.
We will focus on projects on
social processes such as immigration, borders and refugees as we seek to provide
insight on the work of different groups and finally link them with biographical
proposals related to contemporary art.
1. -Landscape and gazing. Beyond stereotypes.
2.- Urban and not-so-urban perspectives. Taking into account our immediate context: our daily life, urbanism and public spaces.
3. -In process. Work processes in contemporary art, the research involved behind the art object and the tactile one.
4. -Art requires involvement. An active perspective and activism.
5. -Fear. Otherness and dialogue.
We will be using images from archives and audiovisual media and artist books, fanzines and graphic novels as references.
