The Art and the Public Sphere programme is an inter-disciplinary course.

It is aimed at artists, curators and writers who are interested in interrogating and exploring contemporary art and its relation to the notion of the public sphere of opinion formation, its relationship to the history of Western democracy, and its role in enabling free discussion and political action.

The programme develops the discourse from art in public space to a broader interrogation of what we might understand to be public.

The course considers art, art criticism and curatorial practices as an integral and vital aspect of culture in the 21st century and it operates by bringing together practice and theory as praxis.
