The project explores the way research-based art-making generates new kinds of knowledge about migration and displacement as urgent global challenges. Building on a Research-Creation approach to teaching migration history in dialogue with the visual arts, which pioneered at Bard College Berlin, the initiative will progressively draw together students, professors, and artists from across the participating institutions over two academic years.
Faculty will share their research experience and think together about how to best leverage the practicing arts to enrich teaching in the social sciences and humanities.
In a network class that explores regional and global institutions relating to the “modern refugee” and their impacts on the lives of forced migrants, participants collaborate on public-facing events, including a multi-site exhibition that offers student artworks from the class as transformative interventions into local and transnational debates about the global migration regime.
