The summer course META MEDIA – strategies in contemporary media art production focuses on artists using moving images in their art practice. How do artists implement media art, storytelling and time-based video in their work? How does the Internet affect art production, objectification, the viewer and the maker today? The latest developments in media art will be discussed – both with theoretical examples and practical exercises. Selected video art works will be presented to serve as a basis for further discussion and reflection. This seminar will give a deep insight into various media art practices to inspire the participants own work. They will be able to develop their own voice and language working with time-based media and video art. The participants will present their own work in progress and get feedback from the lecturer and the group. As an outcome, the produced video works will be shown in a public screening event and/or in internet.
