ART of the MOOC: Merging Public Art & Experimental Education

Free classes begin October 19, 2015


Can a MOOC be a work of art? Creative Time and Duke University believe it can!

Join thousands of students and participants from 
around the world in ART of the MOOC-a Massive 
Open Online Course that is an educational artwork 
designed by artist and Duke professor Pedro Lasch 
and co-taught with Creative Time chief curator 
Nato Thompson. This free course will be taught 
with traditional classroom practices, along with 
new technology and aesthetic experimentation. 
While learning about socially-engaged practices, 
students will engage in stimulating discussions, 
collective art projects, and other creative 
assignments. Through this hands-on, participatory 
of the MOOC welcomes students as collaborators in 
an unprecedented expression of public art and 
education. Our free MOOC features presentations 
from an impressive array of prominent artists, 
curators, critics, and activists.

Guest presenters include Tania Bruguera, Sean 
Dockray, Claire Doherty, Tom Finkelpearl, Future 
Farmers, Mariam Ghani, Rebecca Gomperts, Chido 
Govera, Gulf Labor, Hans Haacke, Sharon Hayes, 
Fran Ilich, Shannon Jackson, Suzanne Lacy, Rick 
Lowe, Leonidas Martin, Naeem Mohaiemen, Mujeres 
Creando, Wanda Nanibush, Not an Alternative 
(represented by Beka Economopoulos), Enrique 
Peñalosa, Cesare Pietroiusti, Jolene Rickard, 
Chemi Rosado-Seijo, Ruangrupa, Abigail Satinsky, 
Gregory Sholette, Joshua Wong, and Caroline
