"The camera tells a lie that the audience tends to believe." (Young)

Nowhere are the politics of image-making more debated than in contemporary anthropology. This five-week course explores the tension between the rawness of the documentary image and the impossibility of anthropological truth. Drawing on the field of experimental ethnography, participants will consider the ambiguous relationship between image, narration and representation and explore ways of re-contextualising or disrupting visual evidence through the creative use of text, voice, sound, performance and space. Emphasis will be placed on participants not only debating issues and watching films but also producing ideas and work for group feedback. Films studied will include work by Ian Breakwell, Jean Rouch, Timothy Asch, Dan Graham and Maya Deren. This course is open to everyone including those interested in visual anthropology, experimental film, documentary and video art.
