NYU Steinhardt

History of Film and Video Art

  • Course Number: ARTCR-GE 2201
  • Hours: 40
  • Units: 4
  • Description: The moving image is an art form that has largely been propelled by technology. Still in it's infancy - the first film was made in 1895 - it is a form that has quickly evolved from the desire to capture motion, generating almost as many uses & traditions both conceptual & material as there are makers. Through screenings, readings, lectures & discussions this course investigates the ways in which certain artists have used film and video to explore meaning, experiment with form, & reshape the way we see.
