This innovative transversal curriculum with strong links to the creative world in all its forms, and open to Sciences Po Saint-Germain students throughout their studies, is going on, adapting to the time of confinement.
Michel Field, guest of the last ‘Arts and Politics’ class
Michel Field is Director for Culture and Performing Arts at France Télévisions.
The impact of television on political life, the place given to culture on television, and the particular role of public television in a country under lockdown have all been discussed during this exchange conducted online for and by 1st year students.
Arts and feminism, by the students, for the students
In this project this year, students have been led by artists and curators at the Centre Pompidou and the Musée d’Orsay to understand and analyse works of art on the subject ‘The place and the representation of Woman in painting since the 18th century’. Museums being closed, the students have shared online with their fellow students reproductions of several masterpieces along with their own analysis… a home-made version of the virtual visits now offered by many museums.
The Masque of the Red Death : Sciences Po Saint-Germain virtual writing workshop
Since October 2019 the students in this workshop regularly meet with the author Frédéric Ciriez (Bettiebook, éditions Verticales, 2018).
For the last two classes, held online, Mr Ciriez suggested to work on The Masque of the Red Death, a novel by Edgar Alan Poe, tragic and magnificent, and more newsworthy than ever.
Rome, closed city
Two Master’s students in confinement in Rome, Italy, have gathered texts and photographs in a remarkable portfolio depicting the beginning of the lockdown in Rome, with the progressive shutting down of the town and its inhabitants.
This portfolio is published by the online photography magazine ‘L’oeil de la photographie’.
