Experimentalism

A survey of the self-described "experimental" filmmakers of the 1960s and 1970s, and their associates, with some reference to forebears and followers and some reading of associated texts. We will view multiple films by Stan Brakhage, Paul Sharits, and Hollis Frampton, in particular, as well as works by Ken Jacobs, Andy Warhol, Michael Snow and Ernie Gehr, as well as a selection of experimentalist media in other genres. Discussion with short papers and a longer final paper or project.

Complete syllabus coming soon.
