DIS/PLACE DIS/PLAY: A collaboratively-curated exhibit of the Students of Experimental Ethnography: At the Boundaries of Art and Anthropology.
A team-taught course that addresses the axis of anthropology and art. It combines theoretical discourse and media production associated with the expanded fields of art and ethnography. Those familiar with the social sciences will be trained to critique and produce ethnographic representations in media including film, sound and photography, while considering parallel developments in contemporary art. Similarly, those
experienced in art and media production will make use of the theoretical and ethical considerations of anthropology and new experiments in ethnography while continuing their art and media practices. The course contains seminar and production practicum components, as well as various field trips, screenings, and guest lectures. The course culminates in this exhibition in the Jewett Gallery, in which all students participated.
