Indigenous Media

This course explores Indigenous media art in the context of the major political and social discourses currently informing contemporary Indigenous communities. Through screenings, readings and guest artists we will examine critically engaged community-based art practices in the context of Indigenous aesthetics. Two-spirit, gender, class and race issues will be seen through the lens of Indigenous artists. The course will compare the function of art from an Indigenous worldview with that of a Western one.
