MFP 703 - Graduate Seminar: Photography III


This third residency seminar explores the major figures working in photography after WWII as the medium began to be accepted widely as fine art by museums, galleries, art historians, and the general public. Significant technical advancements in photography including color imaging, the Polaroid instant process and digital imaging reshape the language of the medium and revolutionize the way photographers and artists are able to communicate with an audience. Digital advances now allow photographers to compete with painters and other large-scale artists exploring a range of environmental; and social issues in a postmodernism culture. Topics include the concepts that led to the development of modernism, postmodernism, feminism, colonialism, and racial representation; commodity culture, as well as ideas about collecting; technology; and digital revolution. Topics are explored in writing assignments and class discussions as well as through readings, video and film viewing. Each student will produce short writing assignments that accompany assigned readings. (3 Credits)
