Course description

With a focus on opacity refusal and other gestures of resistance this studio course is an experimental testing ground for performance art using new media. We study performances that refuse subvert and question oppressive structuresóoften using new media and technologyóand the strategies these performances deploy. Students work intensively to create performance works using sound video installation and networked media including the internet. Students should be prepared to think critically about the works they produce and be able to articulate their process and goals for their work using varying methods (drawing writing image collection and so on). This course includes readings class dialogue lectures screenings critiques journaling and performances. This course is being offered by the sound and performance art duo SCRAAATCH.
