No where else in the world can you find the range of disciplines in one school. Over the last 50 years as we forged new programs, built our home in New York and expanded to our global academic centers, institutes emerged. Each are built with shared values, common goals, and a priority for putting students first. The result – a place where artists and scholars create the future.
Visiting students and non-majors are invited to take classes during January Term, Spring at Tisch, and Summer. Earn credits towards your major or minor, build your résumé with an internship, or take classes to change careers. Come be inspired by New York City and our international sites.
The Office of Special Programs at Tisch School of the Arts provides access to the arts. Whether you’re an NYU or visiting college student, high school student or working professional, we provide you with the introductory exposure to the performing or cinematic arts and the advanced-level training to grow your craft.
In his talk, Bogdan Szyber will discuss his current research on the overlapping effects of three key components in the production of artistic research:
· Academia as a Site of Performance
· Online Economy of Digital Labour as Actors
· Conceptual Art and Institutional Critique as a Method
Using theatre as a metaphor and dramaturgy as a methodology, and incorporating discourses on class, gender and the global digital economy, Bogdan Szyber analyzes the intersections between neoliberal pressures for academic excellence and the uses of fraud in higher education industries, which are fueled by the “invisible” work of the digital global proletariat.
Bogdan Szyber has worked with various hybrid forms in the performing- and visual arts since 1983, always in collaboration with his colleague Carina Reich. He has a background in performance and site-specific art, and has created over 80 productions -- from ballets to the Royal Opera ballet of Sweden, to live death-metal music, experimental film, as well as radio theatre projects, daily urban rituals with thousands of participants throughout Sweden.
His latest non-commissioned work dealt with the commercialization of the arts in connection to the feeling of guilt evoked by street beggars, and fictitious documentary film dealing with women and revenge.
He is a PhD candidate at The Stockholm University of The Arts /UNIARTS.
