How does the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard) represent itself, and what is that self-image perceived to be? Conversely, what are the hopes, fantasies and aspirations, and the collective self-image among the school’s main players? Using a discursive format based on the iconic TV show “Family Feud”, these questions will be explored in the CCS Bard Atrium on May 3rd, 2 PM.
A list of questions has been distributed among students, staff, faculty and alumni. During the game, contestants must determine the most popular answers to each question regarding CCS and its institutional identity. Thus the event does not aim to expose “dreams and illusions”, in order to better define “real life on campus”, but, rather, to gauge the prevalent perceptions of the school, and the professional sense of self among its next-of-kin.
Our hosts of the day are participants in Tirdad Zolghadr’s seminar “The Angry Middle Aged”, which addresses the ongoing Educational Turn in the arts:
