Come join the students of the Center for Experimental Humanities as they publicly ruminate on the status of nothing through an evening of varied and idiosyncratic presentations.
Nothingness has generated over a century of visual art, literature, music, and film, which has challenged the boundaries of aesthetic practice and philosophical thought. At once historically grounded and completely free-form, our class engages with the concept of nothing in artistic practice and in both modern and contemporary art and literature. Students will present a work of their choosing—a comic book, YouTube video, novel, poem, song, or image—that relates to waiting, emptiness, refusal, silence, and other variations on nothingness.
Held in conjunction with Visiting Assistant Professor Lori Cole’s course Nothingness: Art, Literature, Sound, and Screen
