About this Unit
This unit explores the histories and theories of animation, from its origins to its contemporary critical practice. The unit covers independent and experimental animation: digital animation and special effects; anime; and the subversive impulse in adult animation. The lectures involve viewing a broad range of works from these areas, followed by tutorial-based close readings of the works. These close readings will facilitate an understanding of the artform’s aesthetic, socio-cultural and technological aspects, contextualising it within the history and theory of art and design—live action cinema, photography, painting, video, TV—and popular culture more generally.
