Who is in? Participation, inclusion and access in art
Underviser: Michaela Kühn Jara
Kontaktperson: Morten Tandrup, email@example.com
This module is about participation, inclusion and access in art and examines ways in which, for instance, the composer opens the doors for the listener, or how the teacher opens the doors for the pupil. We will start by looking at participation as a way to question taken-for-granted modes of productions, to go deeper into accessibility practices and aesthetics of access.
We will examine concrete access practices from performing arts and music; we will discuss selected topics based on so-called crip theory (which focuses on the intersection of queer studies and disability studies); we will get familiar with some artists with disabilities and their work.
The students will be asked to relate their own work to these notions and reflect further: How can inclusion take place within my own work as a musician/composer/producer? How are the formats we currently use excluding/including others? How can the participatory aspect of the work be at the center of a creative practice?
NB: The module will be conducted primarily in English, but the lecturer speaks and understands Danish as well.
An interest in questioning conventional modes of creating and listening. Ideally some experience or interest in interdisciplinarity, as examples from performing arts (mainly dance) in collaboration with music will be thematised.
