Feminism and Photography with Laura Larson
Register below: Enroll by February 21st!
This class will consider the political and poetic potentials of photography for feminist art-making. Assignments will be formulated around a series of questions and concerns: How can we define feminist photography? How does it weave artistic form and content? How does it balance personal expression and political concerns? What is the relationship between gender rights and gender roles on both sides of the camera?
Students will learn a history of photography and contemporary makers through the lenses of feminist practice. Students will explore the connections between formal, conceptual, and political concerns in photographic practice. Students will produce one portrait assignment and complete and in-class assignment. This course is for all skill levels.
