Workshops / Educational photography program

»ArtFotoMode (AFM) –
ONE YEAR PROGRAMME 2023«

ArtFotoMode (AFM) is offering an independent photography programme over a 12-month period in professional partnership with the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center in Budapest. The aim is for participating photographers to produce strong, concise and meaningful projects, exploring the challenging process of creative and intellectual visual strategies.

The emphasis of the programme is experiential, and to study the production of works within the broad spectrum of the ‘documentary’ genre, engaging with the predominant dialogues within the photographic medium including issues related to the: subjective/objective, social/private, document/expression. Understanding authorship, narrative and conceptual factors will be the key ingredients in finding the correct approach to the specific subject matter. Often overlooked, is the human experience of how we see and perceive reality. Optics and how we visualise reality are key factors in building the foundation of photographic projects.

Over the course of the twelve-month period, there will be four physical seminar sessions in 4 different European cities. Each series of sessions will be conducted by notable, renowned and experienced photographers, editors, and curators, as tutors. The aim of each seminar meeting is to make critical progress with the developing projects, both as a group and individual tutorials. Importantly, between the seminars, participants will be required to have monthly Skype/Zoom meetings with the AFM director, Michael Grieve, who will be the overseer of the entire programme.

Da AFM eine internationale Schule ist, finden die Workshops auf Englisch statt.

Participants can begin the programme with projects that are in the early stages of development or begin with new projects. The four European cities will act as inspirational environments to aid in the creative process. Private visits to the Michael Schmidt Archive with Thomas Weski and the Kicken Gallery Archive, both in Berlin. The AFM programme is purely independent, and recognises the importance, and growing necessity, for intensive, experiential and less formal modes of photography education.
