ARTH 3651 Women in New Media Arts (VISST 3651/ FGSS 3655)
MW 10:10 – 11:25
The work of women has been central to the development of new media art. These rich and varied practices include installation, virtual reality environments, net art, digital video, networked performance, tactical media, video games, remix and robotics. This course will begin with an overview of feminist art and early experiments in performance and video art to then investigate multiple currents of digital and new media art, from early interactive installations to biological art. Discussions will focus primarily on works by women artists from Europe, the Americas and Australia.
