Performance and Video Art

Monday–Thursday, June 18–July 13

9:30 am–12:30 pm 

Experience the intersection of live performance and video through the exploration of human actions as art. This course introduces the rich and corporeal practice of visual artists using their bodies, time, and space as a medium for their work. The video component of the class draws upon a wide range of methods and styles- documentary, performance, and experimental video to assess how video captures the meaning and presentation of performance art and explores effective strategies for production and dissemination from technical, methodological, and philosophical perspectives. Students enrolled in this course are expected to work both independently and collaboratively to define their own projects.
