The concept of "intermedia" is a vision of art-making bringing together many diverse art practices in the same work, for example performance, collage, text and poetry, drawing, music, and technology. This seminar explores intermedia's historical avant-garde antecedents (such as Futurism, Dada/Surrealism, and the Bauhaus) as a context for contemporary work in performance, visual art, dance, video, sound, and media by John Cage, Fluxus, Happenings, Robert Rauschenberg, Robert Wilson, and Laurie Anderson. The focus is on new perceptual modes and ways of viewing artworks. Readings include artists’ writings, manifestos, and scholarly essays. Students will be tested on their knowledge of the works and readings discussed in class and write short response papers about arts events. This seminar-plus course includes several off-campus performance events and gallery visits.
