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.

Short description
“Today, crisis has become an instrument of rule. It serves to legitimize political and economic decisions that in fact dispossess citizens and deprive them of any possibility of action.” – Giorgio Agamben In this course, the crisis is taken as the point to approach current politics issues from, to investigate the events that occur in the world around us, that often influence, directly or indirectly, our very own daily lives. A crisis catches our attention as it shocks us. It alarms, intimidates, paralyzes. The alarming ring of a crisis tends to affect our emotional stability and behavior. As an immediate response, one wants to withdraw scrupulously from it or, in contradiction, to rush forward to it, blind with anger. Precisely because of these effects, a crisis can deprive us of our capacities to act and speak. This is, however, the very goal of this course: to act and speak about the human affairs covered by the media, affairs that affect us manipulatively and, at the same time, concern us deeply.
