This course presents an intensive survey of contemporary performance, site, and installation art from an anthropological point of view. Specifically, course focuses on artists’ work that were constructed to be experienced live and/or through photographic and video documentation of the work. Students will be given workshops on sound, digital photography, and video editing. Students will be required to produce and present a performance, site, or installation work of their own for their final project as well as photographic and/or video artworks based on their piece.
