Genealogies of Experimental Media

The course explores the construction of selected avant-garde, underground, alternative, counter culture and experimental practices in the theoretical context of artist’s manifestos and writings, as well as in the related secondary and tertiary literature from the humanities and social sciences to sciences, with special attention to critical literature in art history and cultural and visual studies. Students will examine such artistic production in the context of modernist and poststructuralist theories and methodologies from formalism to postmodernism, postcolonial theory, and current twenty-first century approaches. Students will articulate a personal and/or group relationship to the current potentials of the “experimental” through multiple practice- based assignments.
