Expanded Cinema Course Research and Reenactments

March 21, 2019

Students in ARTH 493/593 reenacted Expanded Cinema performances from the 1960s and 1970s as a form of embodied research. Via these reenactment students were able to investigate and document the processes and materials artists used to create the original artworks that are not revealed in photo and video documentation from the era.
