Adrian Anagnost (Tulane University): Booker T. and W.E.B.: Theaster Gates and African American Philosophy
Booker T. and W.E.B.: Theaster Gates and African American Philosophy
Theaster Gates' debt to African American intellectual thought is explicit in his abstract paintings based on W. E. B. Du Bois' social research. This presentation examines Gates' broader social practice as embodying the tension between accommodationist and radical strands in black political though of the 20th-century U.S., with particular attention to pedagogical debates on vocational training versus the liberal arts.
