Objectives and Content
In this course we look at artistic practices where personal identity appears to be present, both as a
topic and as a way of relating to each participants practice. The topic of queerness is an underlying
position to work from, but we will also be discussing a more general outsider-position and investigate
how this is expressed in artistic practices.
Lars Korff Lofthus will give an introductory lecture on the queer approach in contemporary art. For
the period there will be scheduled tutorials with each participant, and there will be a group
discussion at the end of the period, based on each students work. Here we will focus on how personal
identity is manifesting itself in the work. There will also be screenings to highlight key strategies for
expressing outsider positions in recent art.
