Hello Art Theory Summer Campers,

Today is the official opening of Art Theory Summer camp. Our first book is Diana Taylor’s The Archive and the Repertoire: Performing Cultural Memory in the Americas. There are 10 chapters in the book and we have four weeks allotted. The first reading is:

Introduction: Who, When, What, Why
1. Acts of Transfer
2. Scenarios of Discovery
3. Memory as Cultural Practice

Feel free to join in the conversation about the book as a whole or any article of interest. Participate as you are able.

Our first Skype meeting will be

Monday the 26th at 6pm.

If you are interested in this time-based dialogue, sign up for Skype prior to the meeting time. Skype is a free online commutation tool that allows for conference calls. If you have a headset, or headphones, conference calls are much easier to understand.

Happy reading!
