The advanced video course is based on a series of theoretical experiments and practical exercises that examine the gap and tension between video art and film.
The course follows two parallel arcs that dialectically undermine one another: instilling the skill of a discerning viewer and creating video works as an artist and as an individual, against the profound understanding and the ability to recreate the emotional and intuitive ties that underpin the artistic action.
The course is divided into units of 3-4 lessons, each will center around pairs of contrasting concepts from the language of the moving image. We will watch examples, experiment with real time actions, and try to refute prejudices and understand the importance of the large gray area between the two extremes that concern the structure, perception and failures of language.
