Contested Spaces

Contested Spaces is a course that examines how specific sites and objects have participated in the construction of class, race, and gender. The course was designed collaboratively by FAAC, the Feminist Art and Architecture Collaborative. FAAC is Martina Tanga, Olga Touloumi, Tessa Paneth-Pollak, and Ana María León. This Fall 2016, three of us are teaching the course simultaneously at our respective institutions: Olga at Bard College, Tessa at Michigan State University, and Ana María at the University of Michigan. You can follow our student’s work through our website, and on Instagram through the hashtag #contestedspaces.
