Social inequalities : an oral presentation mini course

“For us, art is not an end in itself … but it is an opportunity for the true perception and criticism of the times we live in.” (Dada poet Hugo Ball)

Social Inequalities is a mini course teaching students how to prepare oral presentations using contemporary artists as an incentive. The target group is students over 16 years old and the level is B2+ . In total it lasts about  8-9 teaching hours. This is why the whole series was initially  posted in 3 parts (First : lesson plan 1, Second : lesson plan 2 and Third : lesson plan 3 & 4 together).

Part of it was conceived, designed and taught during my Oxford summer courses. In its entirety though, it was put together for the Visual Arts Circle where it also appeared first. You can find the links here :

Part of this course has been based on specific transformative methods by Kokkos and by Perkins, employing critical thinking techniques and reflective methods to motivate learners to consider and reconsider their views on modern social matters and hopefully to lead them to change through art.  All the artworks used have been carefully selected among works by contemporary artists from a variety of countries who use a variety of artistic media to address and comment on these inequalities through their work and who have also tried to make these problems more relatable to the public.
