Curriculum: Visual & Cultural Backgrounds through the Art of Robert Grober
The contemporary artist Robert Gober gives subversive meaning to wallpaper in an installation at the AIC.
Using juxtaposition and repetition, he turns the racist history that makes up America’s cultural background into a visual background. My lesson invites high school students to consider how to make their American cultural background visible by using Gober’s wallpaper form to juxtapose and repeat images from the mainstream news media after editing them.
