ARTE-3217 Videographs of Memory

The course proposes an exploration of video as a technology of memory and at the same time a general investigation of the role of the memory processes in artistic creation. The construction of personal or collective memory is complex and does not imply only one retrospective or nostalgic relation with past events. The processes involving the recollection of present events and their translation into memory documents transcend the technical recording to involve actively their transformation into subjectivity. The thought processes reinvent the past and update it constantly in the present. The course aims at exploring the vital and active crossroads of memory creation that juxtapose places, objects, situations and times in the transformational experience of creation.
