On German and Mexican Photography


This is a joint seminar between AAVI (Mexico City) and IPS (Berlin). During a six week class we will present interesting photographic views from both countries. We will be discussing where contemporary photographers meet through their work and approach different parts of the world towards one same theme.

In each online session, the experienced artist and lecturers Beatriz Diaz and Marc Volk will present the work from a contemporary photographer from their home country in detail. After the presentation an open discussion will be held between all participants.

Also, students will be able to show a finished or in process body of work to receive well-founded critique.

This seminar refers to the exchange program we have held for six years and opens the conversation to a wider understanding of photography as medium. It is also an academic experience that allows students to build a network with other lens based artists.

This class will be taught in English. Since the number of participants from each country is limited to 6 persons, early registration is recommended.
The fee for the entire webinar is EUR 260,00.
