Post-Fact Studio

6 February - 10 April | Mondays, 7-9pm

Course Description

Registration for spring is now closed. If you have questions about registration, please email info@bhqfu.org

Post-Fact Studio is a seminar and critique class on the interplay of fact-based research, speculation (imagination) and studio practice.

A series of discussions, readings, screening and guest appearances will unravel topics ranging from the role of postmodernism in engendering a post-fact political landscape to the influence of cinema and dystopian fictions on reality.  

Critiques will be held at the end of the semester of student projects developed over the course of study. Students are also welcome to schedule stagings of their work throughout the semester. The work should focus on intervention and interjections on real world topics, however loosely. We will be unpacking the relationships between strategy/branding and form/content. The aim is to uncover ways in which the artist can use the versatility of such a role to impact the implicit relationship between individuals and the narratives and news that they consume.
