Class Details

This introductory-level course offers an expansive definition of video art, exploring the complex interrelations between video and other disciplines within contemporary art. Video art’s inherent heterogeneity is examined as a vital part of the medium’s identity and as a radical mechanism for cultural discourse. Coursework includes lectures, readings, discussions, hands-on tutorials, production assignments, and active participation in dialog/critique. Camera, sound, lighting, and editing techniques are taught alongside key theoretical, historical, and aesthetic approaches to video art. Experimentation and interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged in considering how video art hybridizes with other media, ingests emerging technologies, and develops new distribution models.
The Class: Format: studio; We will adhere to a hybrid format: a mix of in person and remote meetings with additional asynchronous lectures, technical lessons, and screenings to supplement our course work. We will aim to keep class meetings small, and depending on the class size we may break into smaller independent lab groups / discussion groups.
