TDM 124x. Acting, Theory, and Public Speech
Wednesdays, 2-4 pm | Location: Farkas 203
This practice-based class treats works of art criticism and theory as dramatic texts, monologues to be analyzed, learned, invested with desire, and performed. Over the course of the term, students will examine a set of key texts in 20th century art history and criticism, from Greenberg to Benjamin to Krauss. Each will select a text to learn, prepare and perform, culminating in a final, site-specific, roaming performance at Harvard Art Museums. Open to concentrators and non-concentrators, visual and performance artists, art historians, actors, and students of literature, theory, and public speaking.
