Using key works from the LUX archive – the largest collection of artists film and video in the country – this short introductory course will trace and discuss artists’ engagement with the moving image throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, from the early pioneers of the 1920s to contemporary practitioners. We will explore through active discussion the relationship between art and cinema and the place and role of the moving image within contemporary visual arts today.
No previous knowledge is required, just a curiosity to see and find out more about this fascinating area of art practice.
