RELATED PROGRAMMING (NYU Florence students only)
Art Workshop - Responding to Ai Weiwei (students only)
September 29-30, location to be announced
Artists Pato Hebert and Hentyle Yapp, Art and Public Policy, New York University

As you enter NYU’s Global Network University, it might be helpful to ask yourself a few questions:
What are the politics surrounding your mobility versus others in the world?
What sense of the world, global, or transnational are you developing?
This workshop entitled ‘The Plural and the Common’ is meant to center such questions in relation to Ai Weiwei’s art, as his work directs us to questions around migration, circulation, and constructions of China, Italy, and globality.
Students, immigrants, refugees, and art market stars circulate the world; however, there are distinct formations of power that construct their senses of belonging and not belonging. Similarly, power inflects how China and Italy are differently imagined as global sites and ancient civilizations.
This workshop is meant to unfold some of these complex meanings around the circulation of bodies and construction of worlds.
