---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Photography is approached as a means of communication. Students immerse themselves in different visual codes, practices, genres and histories of the medium. By means of intensive workshops, self-study, short assignments and longer ambitious projects, each student is expected to develop an authentic visual style. To embed ourseves into the fied of contemporary photography, we regulary visit exhibitions and invite international guest professors.
The photography department is closey connected with the research group Thinking Tools and acts a regular co-organizer of symposia and exhibitions.

Professionals with an active career in the field will guide you through creative processes:
