Bard Graduate Center, New York, NY
The Bard Graduate Center: Decorative Arts, Design History, Material Culture is a graduate research institute committed to studying the cultural history of the material world. Our degree program, research projects, and exhibition program together work to suggest a new field of questions at the crossroads where the decorative arts, design history, and material culture studies meet. At the BGC, our focus is on Cultura. This ancient Latin word referred to the class of activities in which human beings acted on, and so transformed, their natural surroundings. We have taken this as the outline of our institutional project: studying the substances intervened upon, the processes used to make these interventions, and the consequences of these interventions for the lives of human actors.
