Goldfarb Summer Institute 2023: BORDER FORMS: (RE)DRAWING LINES

15th Annual Goldfarb Summer Institute 2023
PROFESSORS: Natasha Bissonauth & Tammer El-Sheikh

Many key art historians, artists, curators, and others thinking with the visual do so through anti-colonial discourse and critical race theory to disturb the White, colonial, Eurocentric roots that undergird the field and the residues that remain in the discipline. Consider for example, the region-specific genealogies so foundational to art history. What would it mean to trespass such borders? Where is the line? And by extension, how are the formal characteristics of a border generative in art making and art thinking? By emphasizing Black and Brown art histories that reorder and disorder the bordered logics of the discipline and that imagine possibilities for the visual beyond surveillance regimes, this intensive graduate seminar in Visual Art and Art History elaborates on the border as a political tool, a conceptual device, and an aesthetic gesture.
