PROFESSIONALISATION & PRESENTATION
 
In the third year of your studies, you will be challenged to go further in-depth by immersing yourself into a semester-long project working around a given theme. 

A driving aspect is to bring nuance and subtlety into both content and presentation of your work. You are expected to become aware of your potential audience, and the consequences this has for your work, as well as working with an entrepreneurial spirit.

Your long-term semester project will end up as your first solo-publication, produced in collaboration with students from KABK’s Graphic Design department. You are also expected to present your project using a different presentation platform; for example, using interactive design or moving image. You finish the project with a public presentation outside the academy where you will gain valuable experience in organising, constructing, publishing, financing and advertising a project, all the responsibility of you and your peers.

In the second half of the third year, you will go on an internship with one of the many acclaimed professionals from our broad international network. Over the course of one semester, you will build up a network and obtain experience in the professional field. This experience enables you to connect different elements of your study and prepare plans for your final year.

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

Art, Photography History & Reflection
Ingrid Grootes

Short description
177 years ago photography came into being, at least officially. Right from the beginning a discussion raised the question: What qualities actually define photography and whether it can be art or not. How does this new medium relate to other disciplines? The substantial formulation of the theory of photography developed in the last century, and continues in our time. It seems the issue of the relation with reality is a reoccurring theme, even in our digital age. Nowadays the boundaries of different disciplines appear to become more vague than ever. So what does being a photographer mean in contemporary times? In this course, you’ll learn how to apply theories and philosophies of photography for the development of your own work and gain depth in your professional level of working. The aim is to be more explicit about your medium and your professional field.
