ART 670, Speculative Ecologies

This course imagines sculpture, performance, and writing as entangled choreographic practices. These encounters—conceptual, material, somatic—unfold through individual and collaborative projects, conversations, writing, and deep research that trespass from sculpture to science fiction, cinema to landscape, punk rock to theory, dance to poetics, history to utopia. Ecological thinking demands relation, proposing an intimate connection between theoretical trajectories and individual praxis. Expanding our repertoire of performance and writing techniques, we experiment with improvisation, Action Theater, Authentic Movement, somatic and movement-based practices diffracted through texts by Fred Moten, Karen Barad, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Paul Preciado, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Hortense Spillers, Claudia Rankine, Maggie Nelson, Danh Vo, and La Ribot, among others, to engage possibilities for critical making and thinking. Permission of the instructor required. Jenn Joy
