Seminar ART WRITING IN AND OUT OF LOCKDOWN by Habib William Kherbek

“A series of workshops and discussions examining the role of art writing in relation to changing social environments. The workshops will begin by exploring the evolution of art writing as the art environment around it has changed. Special attention will be paid to the late 19th century, mid 20th century and the present. Further workshops will consider the relationship of art journalism to space, to digital formats, and to structural relationships of power. The series will conclude with a workshop about lockdown, art writing, and mobility. Readings will be provided and in class writing exercises offered.” (Text & photo by courtesy of Habib William Kherbek, photo: Habib William Kherbek during his lecture at BAI, April 2019)
