Photography

Bachelor 1

Professor : Antoine Meyer

This course aims at stimulating the exploration of photography as well as working on a reflexive approach. The contemporary practice of this medium implies different aesthetic tensions between chemical and digital processes. In a theoretical and technical questioning of these mechanical recordings of the world, the exercises proposed will be shown as visual hypotheses in order to develop each student’s artistic practice.

Bachelor 2

Professor : Marie-Noëlle Boutin

The course is a space dedicated to work, research, and experiments. It functions as a laboratory where students share their experiences and their reflections on the photographic medium. Exploring themes related to photography and to contemporary art, students develop their critical sense, their creativity and create a personal photographic language.

Bachelor 3

Professor : Gilbert Fastenaekens

Using photography means creating a complex process where concept, subject technique and end result blend. The course encourages interventions by students and their being able to communicate their intentions and their references (photographs, artists, social or cultural context, and so on). The aim is to take a step back and identify what comes out of the work and to be able to implement the post-processing, to establish a link between the images and to approach their spacialization.




Masters

Professor : Gilbert Fastenaekens

A significant part of the photography Masters course is dedicated to the follow-up of the students’ personal practices through individual interviews or collective critical discussions. Analytical work, as well as a constant practice of exchange, lead to understanding the challenges of a committed work, its place in the field of photography and in the art world. The contextualisation and socialization of the work are also priorities that condition the understanding of the context of a project by regularly dwelling on issues of spatial exhibition and of publications in order to question the ways to connect or not with an environment, a territory or the digital space. In this course, we regularly focus on the understanding of major photographic works through in-depth analyses. Finally, throughout the year, a series of theoretical modules are suggested, articulated around themes across the various contemporary photographic practices that call upon sociology, economy, history, literature, etc. in order to broaden the referential fields.
