VIDEO ART & experimental film ARTD 415/515
July 18 – August 11
Mondays – Thursdays, 1:00 – 4:50 P.M.
White Stag Building
This upper level Video Art course is designed to encourage independent work in keeping with one’s own creative practice. Projects include video installation, short format and experimental film. Students are encouraged to push beyond personal boundaries, take risks and to experiment. Video/sound art practices including installation, performance, experimental and new genres will be examined including the development of video art and its relation to broadcast media, the gallery space, visual culture and contemporary art practice. Class discussions include an exploration of contemporary themes in video art, such as re-authoring, appropriation, storytelling and spectacle. The course begins with an introduction to 60s & 70s video artists, whose works ranged from purely conceptual deconstructions of the filmic/video apparatus, including durational, rule based and still camera work to more political and social concerns that critique cultural assumptions toward issues of race, representation, gender, the body, queer identity, culture and nation.

Open to all students by permission of the instructor or by prerequisite.
