In this studio/activist course, we will research, produce and document three activist projects together that address issues relating to the human and civil rights of women in prison. We will visit and correspond with women in prison, and work on their cases and related research. We will have visiting artists and human rights activists as speakers. Readings and discussions will center around issues of criminalization, representation, exploitation, voice and visibility, and human rights. We will study a range of artists' activist projects that relate to our focus. Projects will be both individualized and collaborative and public. Course open to students in School of Art & Design, or LS&A through Women's Studies.
