Applications for the 2015 Art & Law Program are now being accepted.
Art & Law Program seminar on contemporary art, copyright and moral rights.
Going on its 6th year, The Program seeks qualified candidates interested in the philosophical and practical relationship between art and law. For more information on The Program, please view the Program description.
The 2014 Program focused on tangible and intangible property and contemporary art. For the 2015 term, The Program will focus on property, government and violence, with a particular emphasis on contemporary art and artistic production. Although the 2015 Program outline is still under construction, we will look at specific issues such as constitutional interpretations of freedom of expression and dissent (the First Amendment), as well as gun rights (the Second Amendment). We will also analyze concepts of government in both symbolic and existing formats.
Accepted participants will be expected to review both written and visual material during the course of the 2015 Program.

Please note that there is a particular emphasis on the critique of current artistic, curatorial, theoretical and art historical practices and methodologies, particularly vis-a-vis legal frameworks and structures. Conversely, the use of law and jurisprudence as theory, practice and medium is explored. Please note that The Program does not focus on traditional and conventional critical theory, but rather investigates how the concept-practice of law disturbs the critical theory establishment and creates a new space and discourse for aesthetic and intellectual practices.
