Spooling the Ethnographic

01 Feb-01 May 2014

Central St. Martins Course

The Spooling the Ethnographic course will take as a starting point Hal Foster’s 1996 essay The Artist as Ethnographer, which looks at a turn to ethnography / anthropology within artistic practice.

This project will consist of a series of readings, film screening and discussions, which will explore this shift and its implications. Students will be working with Iniva as both a location for an exhibition of work produced, but also as a research resource.

Iniva’s project The Social Archive was produced collaboratively with individuals from Shoreditch to produce a body of social knowledge about their neighborhood. This course will use this particular project as a research tool to think through a collective approach to creating a ‘social document collaboratively.’

The course has been developed by tutor Erika Tan with Teresa Cisneros, Iniva’s Education Curator.

Oucomes of the course include: working closely with Iniva’s resources, learning directly from arts professionals, developing a collective artwork and producing an exhibition of the work created during the course.
