School Watch reports on Open School East and Land Arts of the American West, plus the Classroom program "Spectatorship, Race, and Citizenship"

Out of the Ordinary: Learning in Public at Open School East
By Chris Sharratt
“The school was forged in the educational fallout of rising tuition fees and the city’s ballooning property prices. With an annual intake of twelve to fourteen artist associates—students per se—who contribute to the school’s public-facing activity in lieu of fees, it was conceived as an attempt to address the growing inequities of art education in England, specifically the challenges facing artists of limited means wishing to study in the nation’s capital.” [read more]

Land Arts of the American West: Creating a New Framework for Field Research
By Liz Janoff
“If Land Arts of the American West can appear to outsiders as an exotic camping trip or remote art sightseeing excursion, it counters that misperception by providing students an opportunity to research and inhabit landscapes in the United States that are difficult to access and interpret, and introduces them to a network of individuals, organizations, and institutions actively studying forms of land use in the West and along the US-Mexico border. The granularity of detail experienced firsthand from a site visit to Spiral Jetty, for example, within the context of the program’s comprehensive itinerary and syllabus outdoes any cross-country drive, even one undertaken by the most dedicated art enthusiasts.” [read more]

School Watch presents distilled perspectives on degree programs in the arts, with interviews, critical texts and editorial exposés on MFAs, Masters, Doctorates and certificate programs in fine arts, art history, curatorial, cultural and film studies, and other related areas of specialty.
 

Spectatorship, Race, and Citizenship
Curated by Gabrielle Moser
“What does it mean to claim photographic practices as practices of citizenship in a postcolonial moment? How do we reconcile the powerful role that photography has played in the consolidation and visualization of race with its civic potential? This program aims to elaborate the complex histories of subjectification and desubjectification that photography and filmmaking have participated in, engaging recent debates about spectatorship, race, and citizenship but grounding these terms in their historical conjunction with colonialism.” [read more]

Featuring Arielle Azoulay; Homi K. Bhabha and Claudia Rankine in conversation; Sukanya Banerjee; Tina Campt; Richard Mosse; and a conversation between Tom Keenan, Dana Stevens, and Joshua Oppenheimer.
 

Classroom features thematically organized lectures and conversations chosen by artists and thinkers on issues relevant to their practice and contemporary artistic discourse.
