COURSE DESCRIPTION New Media Art poses new challenges to artists as well as curators. The range of tasks is broad and requires new skills for those professionally involved with ex hibitions. This class investigates this new type of curating in all its aspects, from organizing and administrating to studying its history to develop the backg round knowledge necessary for curating New Media Art. Its precedents, such as ea rly installation art like monitor- and broadcast-based work are also examined.
