Expanded cinema - audiovisual and its contemporary forms

Installations and the relationship between work, object, and space.

The course addresses the emergence of artistic installations involving video and cinematic forms, from their historical background and new possibilities for the relationship between the work and the space.

What will you learn?

The course comments on the main manifestations of what is understood as "expanded cinema", from the time when the term emerged, with the publication of Expanded Cinema in 1979 by Gene Youngblood, to current experiences around new formats that emerge from new communication technologies, involving video projections in different supports.  

The approach takes place through 3 classes that complement each other in blocks:

Class 1: The space informed by images;

Class 2: Objects, video sculptures, and installations: things and images;

Class 3: Video projections, between white cube and black box;

The approach is mainly through the association of video with other artistic manifestations, in hybridisms and languages in transit.

Who is it aimed at?
