Program Description:

Study with a dynamic community of visual, performing, and literary artists, where art and creative dissent have played a decisive role in shaping social and political change.

bohemiaThis program immerses students in the Czech Republic’s contemporary art scene and explores the country’s rich artistic heritage. Students are challenged to consider the relationship between art, politics, and society in the country’s historic and contemporary contexts. Students can choose either a field-based academic experience at NGOs and community centers or an arts-based research project that integrates creative writing or visual or performing arts practice.

Major topics of study include:
  • how the roles of artists and civic leaders have transformed in a new democracy
  • critical challenges associated with liberal democracy and the legacy of communism
  • art in relation to open borders, consumerism, and the free market of post-communist Europe
