CORE 002 SC - The Aesthetics of Justice: Race, Space, Architecture and Music
As a follow-up to the question posed by Core 1, "What is a community?" this course examines the aesthetics of justice as practiced in contemporary urban communities. The Aesthetics of Justice: Race, Space, Architecture and Music challenges students to engage in discussions and debates regarding social justice and racialized practices of urban environmental design, urban street art (such as graffiti), and urban music (such as rap and hiphop) as responses to the challenges of living in contemporary urban communities. The intention is to critique the current educational model of art and music history that has been appropriated from the ecole des beaux arts. This course will address the topic of race and architecture beyond applies foci by referring to some of the philosophical insights of Foucault, Adorno, and Locke.
