PRESENTATION:

Contemporary Artistic Expressions tries to connect audiovisual with different conceptions of art and creativity, those that go beyond cinema and TV in their conventional forms. In order to show a more general vision of some of the most important manifestations during the last century, the aim of this subject is analysing these ways of audiovisual creation to complement the students’ training and open their minds to assume new possibilities when working with a camera. Subject will focus on three different “arts” that have had a long relationship with audiovisual since this media appeared in the history: fine arts, music and dramaturgy. By this way, students will work imagination and personal expression through the path of visual and aural language.
