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.
