Photography and Video Art in Latin America: A Theoretical and Practical Approach
*Three-week course, second session*

This course has the intention to provide the students with an analytic and reflexive “trip” around the contemporary Latin American artistic production based on “technical images”: photography and video art. From the certainty that in our visual culture both media represent some of our daily links to reality, this course will offer an analytic platform from which we will be able to think of the ideological, syntactic and semantic aspects coming out of the different productions. We will also work in the strong pedagogic potential that actual considerations on photography and video art have in the developing of language learning processes, so that the students could add more didactic and creative tools to their own classes. Even though we will read and study some Latin American theory and will have an approach to visual materials in class, we will also make some simple production exercises that will be also analyzed during the classes. Note: There is no need to bring special cameras or have any technical skills; we just need a cell phone and a computer. (.5 unit) Civ Cul & Soc
