Photography: Course

Body-Portrait II

Kuperman Ruven, Semester 2, Thursday, 10:00-13:00
In this course we will discuss different positions in relation to portrait and the body. Using texts and works by artists from different periods and different disciplines and approaches. During the course we will discuss the relationship between art photography and representation. Fluxus and body art: one of the expressions against capitalism, against oppression and hierarchies that it produces. The grotesque body: the transition from using the body as a subversive political act to the cyborg and the grotesque manifestation. The body in the global era: in the age of information, perceived at the same time and space, so that the subject is lost in the matrix
