What you'll learn in this history lesson:

From Super8 to VHS: Contemporary Artists Intervene in Home Movies

Home movies bring to life some of our most precious memories. They allow you to watch your first-born child blow out their 1st birthday candles again or watch your grandfather fish at the family lake house. Stored on VHS tapes, super 8 films, and more recently, digital media, these flickering moments come to life in ways that still photographs simply can’t.

As technologies advance and transform, our access to and methods of watching home movies change and become less straightforward. Antiquated technologies lead to boxes of film reels and VHS tapes forgotten in the shadows of our homes. Artists have since rescued these materials from attics and basements as well as second-hand shops.

In From Super8 to VHS: Contemporary Artists Intervene in Home Movies, students will learn about the innovative ways that contemporary artists reinvent home movies, both in the nostalgic subject matter and the physicality of the film material, flickering new life into forgotten footage. Over two class sessions, students will grow their visual language and understanding of photographic theory and expand their knowledge of art history.
