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.

S2 Photography: Fiction & Society (F)
Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin

Short description
We think about the world around us as dividing into two seemingly discreet perspectives: fact and fiction. The first speaks of evidence, history, politics and is informed by what is unfolding in the world around us. The second emerges from our imagination in the form of stories. These may take the form of elaborate narratives, or be expressed in a single constructed image. They can be funny and they can be tragic. Inevitably though, they are the projections of our fears and desires. In this course we aim to show how these two lenses on the world are less distinct than we may think! A work of fiction may become a piece of historical evidence. And events in the world can mutate through time into fictions, and form part of the stories we tell ourselves at night before we fall asleep. Through the execution of short tasks, and the exploration of historical examples of both documentary and fine art works, we will explore the penumbral between these two apparently distinct worlds. We will consider how they interconnect and rely upon one another’s distinct vocabulary and modes of production.
