AU: 3.0
Programme: NIE

A study focused on the discovery and understanding of the artistic heritage, psychogeography and socio-cultural significances of a specific part of Singapore. For 2005, the site chosen will be the very vibrant and colourful area of Joo Chiat/ Katong. "Borders" in this sense may comprise the historic, contemporary, architectural, cultural, social, political, psychic and imaginary boundaries that define every day life in the area. A considerable part of the course will be spent doing experiential work (maps, photography, video itself). Course work will involve comprising Situationist-inspired interventions that take as starting point the ways that this particular quarter and its inhabitants perform.
