Decolonize Time explores contemporary artists whose time-based works radically reflect on histories and cultures erased from the lands we live on, our current embodied socio-political conditions, and point us towards decolonial, ecofeminist futures. Focused on video, film, sound, and including performance, this course considers an array of artistic practices that center marginalized collective demands, shift into perspectives aligned with geological time scale, and keep time in decolonized tempos. Artists include Raven Chacon, Pauline Oliveros, Guadalupe Maravilla, Rena Anakwe, Sun Ra Arkestra, Yuki Kihara, Dineo Seshee Bopape, Thao Nguyen Phan, Zheng Bo, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Eglė Budvytytė, Karam Ghossein, Carlos Martiel, mayfield brooks, and Christopher Unpezverde Núñez. Students will generate time-based works that reference these artists’ frameworks while addressing students’ own pressing political questions. Readings include “Placing Time, Timing Space” by Rasheedah Phillips, “In the Wilds of Black Sound” by Anaïs Duplan, “Time and the Colonial State” by Meryem-Bahia Arfaoui, “Giving, Taking Notice” by Dylan Robinson, “Quantum Listening” by Pauline Oliveros, “Feminist, Queer, Crip” by Alison Kafer, and “The Dance That Makes You Vanish” by Rachmi Diyah Larasati. Students will learn the basics of Adobe Premiere and Audition to produce video and sound works.
