Essay about the online course: What can contemporary art teach us about knowledge?
Joonas Pulkkinen, a student at the Academy of Fine Arts of the University of the Arts, Helsinki, has written an essay about Learning from Doubt online course. Pulkkinen analyses his own experience and unpacks the contents of the course. The essay will be published on our website and in the November issue of Voima online magazine. A shortened version will also appear in Voima’s printed edition on 7 November 2022.
The essay offers readers access to the course, even if they have not attended it themselves. Pulkkinen also cites printed and online sources to provide some background on the course’s themes. Reading the essay gives us an idea of the course as a work of art and of what Kanwar’s artistic method of doubt has taught him, but also of the situation of indigenous people in the Indian province of Odisha and of the struggle on behalf nature that is intrinsic to their belief systems.
Learning from Doubt – Student Assignments
IHME Helsinki 2022 Commission Amar Kanwar’s Learning from Doubt online course was attended by students of the Academy of Fine Arts of the University of the Arts and sustainability science students of the University of Helsinki. Some of them continued the reflections that arose in the course in the form of their own final thesis. Learning from Doubt student assignments will be presented during Environmental Humanities Month on Thursday 3 November 2022 in an online event open for all. The task was to investigate alternative ways of evaluating and understanding their chosen environmental crime. In their assignments students have applied Kanwar’s method of doubt.
We are glad that Amar Kanwar’s course has continued to live on in the students’ works and that they can be seen by everyone.
The online event is on Zoom, in English, and requires registration.
