LASS221 Free Speech, Free Art and the Law 3 cr.


Would you like to know more about Shepard Fairey’s controversial poster of Barack Obama or “Dread” Scott Tyler’s confrontational art installation “What is the Proper Way to Display a US Flag?”? Or what do you make of the attempted censorship of Chris Ofili’s “Holy Virgin Mary?” In this course we will study recent debates as well as past disputes over freedom of speech and exhibiting works of art from socio-cultural perspectives including art historical and legal views on the subject.
