Visual Poetics of Literary Form: from Visual Poetry to Poetry Film examines the development of experimental literary forms from visual to multimedia poetics through the twenties century in radically changing landscape of Russian cultural history. Explores their transition across national and media borders. Course will look at the history of representation of visual poetic forms from Russian futurism and avante-garde further on to the underground samizdat, poetry film, kinetic and digital poetry pratices. Careful observation of the dynamics of the visual poetic forms will allow to re-think the notion of novelity, as well as to observe how the economical and historic circumstances can influence the mode and media used by the artist. Students will be required to do reading for each class and also will be encouraged to submit visual poetic works of their own for the final exhibition with the discussion to follow.
