Contemporary Art, Technology, and New Media
*Three-week course, first session*

This course is conceived like /a trip/ around the interesting and problematic relationship between Art and Technology. Since the beginning, Art and technè have been inseparable concepts. The historical Avant-gardes of the beginning of the 20th-century modified this view and deeply examined this relationship. The new technological discovers and the media that appeared during this century changed completely the /Art landscape/*. Our course purposes an overview of the different art manifestations focusing in Latin-American productions such as video art, net art, interactive art, installations, urban interventions, performance art, blog art; and also will analyze the changes in the new spectators, as users or operators and the social consequences that this situation involves.
