“In September 2012, a small master’s program at the School of Visual Arts, an art school in New York City, opened its doors: Critical Theory and the Arts. Adorno scholar and translator Robert Hullot-Kentor dreamt it up and put into action a school for artists and graduate students of various fields of inquiry for a collaborative intensive study over one year.”
-Bettina Funcke, Mousse Magazine, No 37

Curricular Vortex“The most interesting and lively model for critical learning that I have encountered, in the city or elsewhere.”
-Sam Lewitt, artist
