ARTH 3780 - Cinema as Visual Art

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ARTH 1700 or ENG 2860 with “C-” or better; or permission of department

Description: This course examines connections between cinema and visual art throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. Focus is put on experimental and avant-garde approaches and on films made by artists in other media; however, the division between commercial and experimental cinema is treated critically. Films are considered in their historical contexts and in light of critical writings from the period. Students should be prepared for extensive reading and writing, as well as in-class discussions. Class time includes lab hours during which various films will be screened and analyzed. This is an integrated media course.
