Are music videos art? 

The music video is an inherently problematic medium. During this class we will watch a number of video clips (spanning the history of modern popular music) and discuss the aesthetic issues inherent such as: manufacturedness, gratuitous persona building, and tasteless cliches. We will also discuss elements of camp, postmodernism, and the continuing evolution of the form in a post-MTV world.
