Künst. PA | Film als antirassistische und feministische künstlerische Praxis

Jo Schmeiser
Art Sciences and Art Education, Art and Communication Practices
2021W, artistic Seminar (SEK), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S03618

Description

“You have to fight the power on a daily basis.” *

In this seminar we will be looking at antiracist and feminist film and media works from the fields of art, cinema and activism past and present. We will analyse – individually, together, and in groups – how our viewpoints are shaped (in part) by our own history and positionedness within society, and how this knowledge can help us develop a critical visual idiom and position.

Using feminist and antiracist critiques of representation, we will define criteria for modes of looking at, discussing and producing things during the seminar. On this basis, you will develop your individual and/or collective artistic projects.

We will work with small exercises, practical and theoretical approaches, and paradoxical interventions. Guest artists and filmmakers will show their works and answer questions. The seminar will be conducted in a gender-aware manner and (if necessary) we will use languages other than the hegemonic German and English. Your criticisms and suggestions will flow into the way the seminar is conducted. In the intermediate presentation (winter semester) your projects-in-process will be discussed. In the final presentation (summer semester) we will discuss the finished projects with guests from inside and outside the university. Under certain conditions, it will be possible to join the seminar in the summer semester.
