He or she is an undergraduate or graduate student and will commit to a collaboration through spring 2011. Knowledge of contemporary art and critical theory a plus.

On average, the Vera List Center organizes one public event per week. Many of them get publicized on campus through economically produced posters, in addition to email announcements and occasional postcards. We anticipate needing two posters designed per month.

The job offers high visibility on campus and being associated with one of The New School’s more unconventional organizations. Payment per poster (including production supervision through The New School’s duplication services) is $100.

About the Vera List Center

Founded in 1992 and named in honor of the late philanthropist Vera List, the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School serves as a catalyst for discourse on the role of the arts in society and their relationship to the socio-political climate in which they are created. It seeks to achieve this through the organization of public programs that respond to the pressing social and political issues of our time as they are being articulated by the academic community and visual and performing artists. The center strives to enhance the university’s educational mission by bringing together scholars and students, the people of New York, and national and international audiences in an exploration of new possibilities for civic engagement.

Each academic year, the center dedicates its programming to one overarching theme, allowing for a continuous, in-depth, and interdisciplinary investigation. In recent years themes have included “Homeland,” “Considering Forgiveness,” “The Public Domain,” “Agency,” and “Branding Democracy.”
