OPEN CALL FOR BOLOGNA SOCIAL PRACTICE LAB 

17 January 2017

directed by Pedro Lasch in collaboration with Rossella Mazzaglia

The Academy of Global Humanities and Critical Theory and the School of Arts Humanities and Cultural Heritage at University of Bologna open a call for applications to join the Bologna Social Practice Lab taught by Pedro Lasch (Duke University) with Rossella Mazzaglia (University of Messina). Selected students (max 20) will contribute, along with participants at the Summer School Global Studies and Critical Theory, artists, performers, and activists, to a social art project called Polit(t)ico: Interventions for Bologna (2017-2018) (more info here)

The Bologna Social Practice Lab will take place during the Summer School (June 26-July 7, 2017) in social media, museums, public areas, historical buildings, popular markets, occupied spaces, and sites of resistance. Students will also have the option of staying involved with the projects after the 2017 Summer School ends through transnational social components and collaborative online platforms. These will continue through the following year and result in a final set of interventions and an exhibition in Bologna during 2018 Summer School session.

The Academy of Global Humanities and Critical Theory is looking for students with a strong background or interest in the theory or practice of activism, street art, music, dance, digital media, visual art, and the performing arts even if they have never produced anything social or artistic before. Vehicular language will be English, but this is a multilanguage project
