Seminars are provided for students of “School for Young Artists” exclusively
The invention of the video camera in the 1970s resulted in radical changes in the production of artworks. Recording the video and sound, control over the image, and the projection gave birth to the new type of art, videoart. Camera became not just a tool for documentation of staged actions, it also enabled the employment of animation and various options for editing of the image. All of these aspects of video creation made it possible to use the space and engage with the body of a spectator.
This course is an introduction to the history of video art. During the seminars, participants will learn the difference between video art, cinema, and television and also discuss different genres and techniques of video art. The course will cover such genres as Video, Video performance, Pseudo-documentary, Computer animation, 3D modeling, installation, media projects, Augmented Reality (AR), and Virtual reality (VR).
