Join us for Bad Taste, a monthly reading and discussion group that focuses on the relationship between social values and art.
Each month, our conversations will be framed by a short, key reading; texts will be made available to participants before hand.
The Bad Taste Reading Group is intended to open up reflections on art - and the social judgements that surround it - in an informal, supportive discussion group. Thinkers addressed will include Mary Douglas; Janet Wolff; Pierre Bourdieu; Nicholas Bourriand; Bruno Latour; Donna Haraway; and Howard Becker.
Each session will be facilitated by Dr Paul Jones, Bluecoat's Sociologist-in-Residence, and Bluecoat's curator Adam Smythe. Over the course of the year they will also devise an evolving art and sociology reading library which will be situated in Bluecoat's cafe from 1 March 2017.
Free but booking required.
