In this course we will explore the work of the artist as an act of world-building. We’ll observe the creation process as a risky and exciting adventure, carry the responsibility of representation and toil in the labour of interpretation. We will learn to work with what we know, what we believe, what we invent – and how to put them all to use. Through introduction to artists and texts we will acquire tools for research and developing ideas, and create our own rituals. The course will include practical exercises and discourse.
