Day 1: Research Assignments

 

Week 1, Day 1:

I missed the first day and part of the second due to a wicked stomach bug. But students were there, so I had to give them some kind of filler. For the first day I sent Pinak a list of 20 artists and art forms, from which each of them was expected to choose one and research for the rest of the day. They are listed below – some are very relevant, some are barely relevant, as I had wanted to come up with 20 distinctly different topics, which was harder than I had expected. I would love to hear suggestions for other artists/art forms that are relevant to collaborative art or story-telling art or activist art.
