The course is available only for participants of the School for Young Artists program
The course will show the evolution of video as an art practice from its inception to the present day. Each lecture traces the phases of the use of video technology, which begins with its introduction in the mid-1960s, to visualize the need to break with tradition and rethink the priorities and objectives of both the creation of art products and the conditions for its presentation. Key works from the history of world and Russian video art will be shown at each lecture to illustrate the main theoretical and practical approaches that characterize each phase in the history of video art development.
