Course Description 
With experimentation and criticality being the key principles of her creative process, Kim Gordon has never limited herself to one area of cultural production. Gordon first presented her works under the name “Design Office” in 1981. The exhibitions took place primarily in friends’ apartments as an alternative to traditional gallery spaces and aimed at undermining entrenched customs of art and design. With Sonic Youth, she has created experimental music exploring American culture’s decay and the tension between subcultures and the mainstream. In this course, Gordon will examine her career, her artistic inspirations, and how creativity presents itself in many artistic disciplines.
