i don't think so
harvard yes but yale?? avant garde??
i went to hunter MFA and took classes in the communications department
they have some good filmmakers of conscious there
i also went to SAIC which has avant garde students but the faculty - not so
sure about that - there were a few
some didn't even know the work of Beuys so...

iowa - i know that ana mendieta went there and it seems very open
