MS 080 AA -Video and Diversity

Institution: Pitzer

Description: An introductory level course exploring video as a medium, particularly as it is utilized by women, people of color, lesbians and gays, grassroots activists, as well as other peoples who are under and/or mis-represented by dominant media. This class explores independent video production from historical as well as issue-oriented approaches. The history of video technology, from analog to digital, is studied with a focus on developments that made video an accessible and powerful tool for self-expression and political intervention. Issues around gender, race, class and sexual politics are examined in relation to works from the above-mentioned communities. Modes of work by individual makers and collectives are presented as case studies in how multiple issues can be addressed through singular oeuvres.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
