Seminar / 30h / 4 ECTS / winter semester. Coordinator: dr Urszula Idziak - Smoczyńska
The western paradigm of thought and culture is based on the link between religion and the privilege of sight. The course will discover numerous religious tropes in visual art starting from video performers, through theatre, cinema and plastic art. Another goal of the course consists in giving students an elementary know-how in terms of technical and artistic abilities in documentary film-making, thanks to the cooperation with professional filmmakers during Film Spring Open workshops. Through analysis and practice the students will move toward experiencing their own visual sensibility and creating their own perspective on religion narratives.
