Making Time at Human Resources: Michelle Dizon

Coinciding with the annual meeting of the College Art Association in Los Angeles, The Arts Research Center at UC Berkeley is hosting the offsite working session “Making Time at Human Resources” on February 22, 2012. Participants have been invited to post some brief thoughts on the topic in advance of the event. This guest posting is by artist, filmmaker, and scholar Michelle Dizon.

I’ve been thinking and teaching a lot lately on the question of what is critique.  Basing my understanding of critique on Foucault has been helpful in resituating the discursive frame of critique, exploding what it is that we do as teacher who lead group critiques, as well as opening the question of criticality for students in a way that understands critique as a practice rather than an object.
