MOOC - Create in public space

On the 9th of September 2019, FAI-AR and IN SITU launched the first MOOC on art in public space, as a part of the IN SITU ACT programme. Illustrated with artistic projects representative of these arts at the European scale, it specifically draws them to question in what conditions public space can become a place of artistic expression, and to explore the relationship between the artist, the artwork and the space where it is created.

A Collaborative and European process

What is public space? Why do artists choose to work in these unconventional places? How do they use these spaces around the world? What kinds of legislation and technical characteristics do professionals have to take into account? This MOOC presents all the artistic, political and human diversity of projects in public space and the full range of their aesthetics. It is first and foremost an analytical tool and a knowledge base. Free and available in French and English, it provides artists and international cultural stakeholders the opportunity to explore artistic creation in public space.
