An introductory course to video art, in which time, camera space and screen are "clay" in the hands of the creator.

The video language defined as an "electronic stream" of thanks, stands at the heart of cultural, political, and economic mechanisms of control. In this medium, video art operates, from the 60s of the last century until today. A medium that has become central to the art world, making subversive and bold use of the mainstream language of the 21st century.

The course offers an introduction to video art as a conceptual and creative expression tool, where tools for developing personal thinking and language will be acquired through practice and criticism. The semester will deal with key concepts, while breaking down and examining the characteristics of the field, from its conceptual origins, major trends and creation at the forefront of contemporary practice.
