About the Course

12783231_965770630173235_1775873009_nIt is no secret that Michael Jackson was an international star. His unparalleled commercial success and phenomenal talent made him a celebrity all around the world. Millions of people flocked to watch Jackson perform in sell-out tours and following his untimely passing in 2009, Jackson’s art, music and creative works have spawned a brand new billion-dollar industry. However, despite Jackson’s unmatched fame and artistic contribution, several questions remain…

Who (or what) was Michael Jackson?

How and why did he create his art?

What exactly happened to him and his representation over the course of his career?

What does Michael Jackson mean to us now?

We begin with an introduction to Jackson’s life, his speeches, his poetry, his autobiographies and his music. Then we consider Jackson’s music and films as a reflection of his cultural significance. We will proceed through Jackson’s artistic canon, visiting key works of art and the contexts in which they were created. By the end, it is my wish that we have all been refined through a masterclass in creativity.
