CSS 395 SPECIAL TOPICS: VIDEO ART- The sixties were an era of progressive change in the United States. The civil rights movement, women’s rights, and anti- war sentiments proliferated new ideas about the world and essentially led to a new way of existence. This period in time also gave birth to the video artists; people who saw video as an alternative form of cultural communication. This collective of artists were able to display the strengths of the video medium by creating new and innovative sensory experiences.

This course will examine video as an art form and a process. We will begin with the 1960’s and the creation of the first video portapacks.  We will watch and discuss the works of artist such as Nam June Paik, Fluxus, Raindance Corporation, and Videofreex.
