Content description

Practicing without a license

–      strategies and means in contemporary film and video art

In this course we will watch films and videos by contemporary artist and examine the different practices and strategies employed by these. We will try to define what distinguishes the artistic approach to subject matter and genre, when artists practice without a license and appropriate already existing formats, like documentary and drama, to different means. Also we will look at and discuss the use of the exhibition space itself: as a place of exchange, experimentation, production and distribution, as well as a stage for an ongoing search for an audience not yet defined.
