The undergraduate minor in Moving Image Arts and Experimental Practices integrates theory and practice in the creation of moving image work that encompasses experimental film and video (such as poetic, personal, animated, and experimental documentary), new media, and time-based installation work. Students take studio courses in emulsion-based filmmaking, digital video production, and new media alongside interdisciplinary theory and history courses in experimental film and video, art cinema, and contemporary art. Through its emphasis on formal and aesthetic experimentation and expression in a variety of moving image media, the minor prepares students to produce moving image work for a variety of exhibition contexts including museums, galleries, mobile devices, public art projects, and non-traditional film spaces.
Course availability may vary from semester to semester. Some courses may be in development and offered at a later time. Students seeking to pursue alternative coursework to fulfill the minor should consult with their advisors.
Minors are available to undergraduate students across The New School except those students at Lang and in the Bachelor’s Program for Adults and Transfer Students who are completing a self-designed BA or BS in Liberal Arts, who are not permitted to declare minors.
