In the twenty-first century, we find ourselves in increasingly media-saturated and mediated realities. This session explores how artists such as Dara Birnbaum, Jordan Wolfson, and Nam June Paik have drawn on popular culture to address the changing nature of the self within these experiences. We will consider a range of artistic mediums—from photography to video installations to games—to explore technology’s role in both limiting and generating new kinds of agency for art-makers and viewers alike.Buy tickets/get more info now
