Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This program offers a broad theoretical and historical understanding of the discourses on, and practice of, art in public space, and provides training in dealing with the practical and theoretical problems arising from the situation of art in public space and examines current definitions of real and virtual public space. It addresses issues of art in public space which are an important feature of current international cultural debate, and examines topics such as: spaces that enable art to be an active interpretation, rather than decoration, of the city; the place of contemporary art beyond the White Cube as an active player in the public sphere; how art can negotiate the new spaces of the contemporary public sphere such as the Internet; how contemporary art can break out of the centralised space of the urban centres and energise suburban or rural space; who should define policies for public culture; and whether it is beyond the field of contemporary art to interpret the historical, economic and social construction of space.
