This class introduces students to performance art forms that create social spaces while addressing larger challenges facing society, all with an eye on pop culture and social media. Students will work on projects in D.I.Y production of popular forms, from making their own art bands, music videos and brand identities to creating collaborative artworks which address real-life problems and seek solutions in actual (and virtual) communities. This class provides a forum for students to engage with the full range of appropriations of pop culture spectacle in the field of art - from inventing a persona to creating a social movement.
