This class teaches aspects of conceptual video art production within a study of its history, specifically early U. S. and Canadian artist video responding to three still-resonant concerns: global pandemics, anti-Black police violence, and U. S. presidential spectacle. A Contemporary video—as cinematic form, gallery exhibition, web stream, broadcast television, social process, or used as tactical media intervention, act of witness, political prank, and legal/physical defense strategy will be considered. Classwork includes screenings, discussion, reading, writing, individual or collective video production, and extensive group critique. No technical experience needed.
