Course Content (Syllabus)
ART AND THE CITY: UN-MAPPINGS Taking the city as its field of practice and research, this course aspires to help students develop their critique of both visuality and physicality. The osmosis between fiction and reality, between the real and its representations as well as a personal use of artistic media are very important for this course. A basic objective is also the emergence of an expanded compositional ability, which will be able to incorporate the complexity of the issues, which come up each time. The course is based on the theoretical analysis and the idiosyncratic use of the concepts of «de-architecturing» and «un-mapping». We will focus on the tracking of de-architectured features of the physical, symbolic and social space of the city, on the location of empty spaces and rifts, conceptual and physical ruins. Photographic and drawing mappings, video and sound mappings, textual reconstructions and different display and exhibition apparatuses will come up by the personal gaze of each student on chosen spots, itineraries or wider parts of the city . The mapping procedures will be undermining the map’s proper representational function, trying to incorporate time and materiality. New scenarios on the chosen sites will constitute a new narration on them. The course includes lectures by the tutor and invited artists, in situ visits and research, walking actions, studio work and oral presentations.
