Opportunity: Online Course “Performing for the Camera”
When: October 5-26, 2020, Mondays 6-8pm CET
Deadline: October 2nd, 2020
Fee to Participate or Apply: EUR 175
Description Of Opportunity:
How are performance artists pushing the boundaries and expanding the definition of performance art and media? How does performance art communicate and participate in social and political discourses, meanings, and values? What is the impact of video on performance? The “Performance for Camera” course is designed to support the creative and intellectual growth of students. We will examine works by cutting-edge artists and consider the conceptual and technical aspects of new media and performance artwork. Students will be exposed to a wide array of visuals and reading materials. The class is structured around individual projects, in-class exercises, and writing activities. The discussions are centered on student works, artists’ writings, and theoretical texts about performance and new media art. Students are encouraged to develop conceptual and creative links between student production and the work of other artists. Students are given a variety of tools and techniques which will allow them to push the boundaries of their creativity, intellect, and imagination.
