Course Spotlight: The Moving Image

How Not to be Seen, Hito Steyerl

The Moving Image

How can the moving image be used as an effective medium within the contemporary arts landscape? This course will explore how video and experimental film have been used to create powerful works of art which have the capacity to offer challenging questions and evoke strong emotions. In the course we will discover that just like photography, painting, or sculpture, the moving image has its own set of parameters that artists can utilize for expression and communication. Students will conceptualize and complete at least two new time-based artworks. Screening materials will be provided in advance of class and reading materials will be supplementary to enhance understanding. Discussion and instruction will take place over Zoom.
