Art & Technology - New Media

Contemporary Art, Technology, and New Media
*Three-week course, first session*

This course is conceived like a trip around the interesting and problematic relationship between Art and Technology. Since the beginning, Art and technè have been inseparable concepts. The historical Avant- gardes of the beginning of the 20th-century modified this view and deeply examined this relationship. The new technological discovers and the media that appeared during this century changed completely the Art landscape. Our course purposes an overview of the different art manifestations focusing in Latin-American productions such as video art, net art, interactive art, installations, urban interventions, performance art, blog art; and also will analyze the changes in the new spectators, as users or /operators and the social consequences that this situation involves.
