This course examines surveillance art and aesthetics of voyeurism and exhibitionism. We explore why the theme and techniques of surveillance are increasingly present in contemporary art. You develop the skills to trace surveillance culture from early secret camera photography to modern artists working within a diverse range of media such as performance, video, collage, installations, conceptual art, etc.
