Intermediate Video: The Question of The Document (FV4117.01)

Mariam Ghani

Intermediate Video will build on technical skills introduced in Intro to Video. Students will be expected to produce several in-class technical exercises and short projects assigned by the instructor, and one final project of their own design. This semester of Intermediate Video will look at the question and current status of the document. What are the truth claims made by different genres and forms of film and video? How have artists sought to produce alternative forms of knowledge through work with embodied, indigenous, oral and fictionalized modes of transmission? How has this work been complicated by the current politicization of terms like “alternative facts” and “fake news”? And how has it been placed into question even within the art context by debates around who has the authority to address particular issues and histories?
