Ofri Cnaani Fine artist

Is the Internet less sexist than the physical world, or does the social order remain as we know it, just without a body? This new course offers a look at an expanding community of international artists who are using social media, video gaming, dating apps, webcams, and other familiar online platforms to examine gendered embodiment, culture, politics, performance and self-representation online. We will ask how pornography on the Internet and targeted advertising have influenced the artistic voices of these artists and explore how they subverted the same conventions and clichés. We will see many projects, participate in some, and will read some canonical texts, as well as new writing about art, gaming and social media. We will also take part in the upcoming Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on International Women's Day.
NOTE: Open to all students.
