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 initiate your own career orientation independently. In addition, you’ll make a head start with projects from the graduation year, meaning you complete a commissioned work and begin writing your thesis. More details can be found in the fourth year description.

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 and Reflection
Saskia Boer

Short description
177 years ago photography came into being, at least officially. Right from the beginning, the discussion was raised about what qualities actually define photography, or whether it could be art or not. And, subsequently: how does this medium relate to other disciplines? The substantial formulation of photography theory developed in the last century, and continues to do so in our time. It seems that the issue of the relation with reality is a reoccurring theme, even in our digital age. And 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. This way, you will gain experience how to use theory for a solid base of your own (artistic) research. After this course you will have the skills to start your thesis research in a confident manner and strengthen your artistic statement with a theoretic foundation.
