CAS Art as Agent: Theory & Awareness

Art Led Participatory Processes I
Jay Koh
 

Content
This module introduces participants through a brief history of artists working in community contexts. It begins with the avant-garde, which emerged out from the modernist trajectory, moving forward into explorations of progressive movements as artists began working outside of studio and gallery spaces, and turning into public participatory, socially engaged and community art practices. The module examines some key differences between works coming out of this trajectory with those that have evolved from the democratisation processes after World War 2.

Objectives
The module will dwell on the conceptualisation and necessary application of a dynamic, responsive, inclusive and open research and knowledge system to inform a praxis that prioritises practice and experiential modes of working with different others and within contexts. This module concludes with establishing a proper understanding of the fundamental elements of dialogue, participation and the performances of subjectivity within the spaces of the everyday that I will discuss under the concept of ALPP.
