* For Session I of our 2018 Summer Institute Program we are extremely pleased to have DIS collective member, Marco Roso as our lead faculty (June 25-July 7, 2018). Framed by our summer exhibition of the same name, DIS’s seminar Thumbs That Type and Swipe: The DIS Edutainment Network circles around a series of exhibitions organized by DIS and framed by dis.art, a new streaming edutainment platform. Through direct engagement with the artists of dis.art, the session will contemplate a series of linked concerns, including: the nature of belonging in a rootless-seeming, networked world; the changing relationship to the ways one owns, lends or gives time through occupations, bodies, or other forms of value-creation. Some of the topics DIS will cover: Money: what is it?; information consumption; the future of citizenship; reparations; love and humor.
