Since 1919, The New School has been home to scholars, creators, and activists who challenge convention and boldly make their mark on the world.
To celebrate this groundbreaking legacy, we are opening our doors to the public for a weeklong festival of innovative performances, talks, workshops, screenings, exhibitions, and more.

On October 1–6, 2019, join us as we reflect on a century of world-changing ideas and together imagine a new kind of future.

The Festival of New is free and open to all.

This is an introduction to aesthetic inquiry. In this course you will become familiar with the work of Maxine Greene and other philosophers and critics who have analyzed the role of art and art-making in society. Greene says that aesthetic inquiry is “an intentional undertaking designed to nurture appreciative, reflective, cultural, participatory engagements with the arts by enabling learners to notice what is there to be noticed, and to lend works of art to their lives in such a way that they can achieve them as variously meaningful. When this happens, new connections are made in experience: new patterns are formed, new vistas are opened. Learn to see, interpret, and engage in critical discussion about art and artistic practice across many media (including, painting and drawing, film, poetry, music, dance, and theater).
