New course for Spring 2008

The following course is a special offering in Film Studies for Spring 2008. Contact the instructor, Julie Perini, if you have questions.

Art History 406: Video: Art, Theory, and Politics
Spring 2008, Tues/Thurs, 3:30pm - 5:20pm, 4 credit hours
Instructor: Julie Perini

This course will provide a selective introduction to the history of artistic experimentation with video imaging technology. In little more than forty years, video is a medium that has moved from small screenings in alternative art spaces to dominance in international exhibitions. The study will include topics such as experimental film’s influence on video art, the role of popular culture and television, social critique and identity politics, relationships between art and technology, video installation, media preservation issues, and new practices in digital media.

For information about other Spring Film Studies courses, contact Shaun Huston or 503.838.8296, or a member of the Film Studies faculty in your major area.
