Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2016-2017.

The course will provide an overview of video art, alternative documentary video, and digital installation and networked art over the past 50 years.  We will analyze four phases of video and new media: 1) the development of video from its earliest turn away from television; 2) video's relation to art and installation; 3) video's migration into digital art; 4) the relation of video and new media to visual theory and social movements.  Screenings will include early political and feminist art (Ant Farm, Roster, Paper Tiger, Jonas), gay and multicultural video of the 90s (Muntadas, Riggs, Piper, Fung, Parmar), video installation and conceptual video (Paik, Hill, Viola, Vasulka, Oursler, Fujihata), animation and networked media of the 21st century (Critical Art Ensemble, Electronic Disturbance Theater, Sub Rosa, Preemptive Media, Kentridge, Benning, Miao).
