PROFICIENCY & IN-DEPTH RESEARCH

In the second year, you’ll dive further into specific aspects of your chosen specialisation Fiction or Documentary.

The difference is primarily manifested in long-term photography courses, taught by internationally acclaimed specialists with different backgrounds in photography. An important goal for the second year is to have your personality shine through in your projects. This ambition is helped by courses like Civil Society Lab where you will be encouraged to explore your fascinations outside the world of art and photography. 

As the focus on technique subsides after the second year, this is the last year to bring your technical skills to the highest level possible. You’ll deepen your knowledge and experience of moving image and interactive media in courses that are tailored to your chosen direction. You also follow a course that entirely focuses on presentation techniques - in line with the ambitions within your work.

The Individual Study Track (IST) – starting in the second year – provides you an opportunity to follow courses outside the department or to do projects that complement your personal interests. You can also choose to follow an exchange semester at one of our partner institutions abroad.

One of the highlights of the second year is the international fieldtrip where you will produce a body of work on a self-chosen topic within one week. The project is preceded by intensive preparatory research. After the trip, you and your peers will collaborate in editing and producing a publication in a one-week workshop.

Semester 1: Photography Storytelling (D)
Donald Weber

Short description
Do we want to tell stories, or do we want to take pictures? Of course the making of pictures is vital to our identity, it’s what we do. But we mustn’t be pressured by those who say “that’s how we do it,” restraining us from exploring the limits of visual representation. We will push the boundaries of ‘documentary decorum’ and set off to discover how a story wants to be told. Experimentation thrives the minute we figure out the methods of distribution and control. So, with a fragmented media landscape comes opportunity, and freedom. And besides, who set the rules in the first place? A short anecdote I heard on BBC radio: A Bosnian writer, who writes in English, his second language, was told by the interviewer, “but that’s not a word we use in the English language.” His response? “Now we do.”
