THE NOTION OF SUBJECT MATTER

Valérie Jouve
PHOTOGRAPHY AS TOOL OF ENCOUNTERS
August 1–13, 2016
French photographer and film-maker Valérie Jouve tirelessly browses the city in search of its inhabitants. Working mainly with a large-format camera, she tries to achieve a portrait of human society. The course concentrates on how to use photography for invention: how can we take a picture using intuition and heart, rather than the eye?
Fee: 700 EUR (reduced: 540 EUR)

Distruktur – Melissa Dullius/Gustavo Jahn
FILM AS A SENSITIVE BODY
August 15–27, 2016
Distruktur is part of the collective LaborBerlin, which preserves analogue film as an artistic and activist medium and maintains knowledge of analogue film-making. Film is a sensitive body, used for experiment in this course. Various processes for artistic work with analogue film will be taught—from shooting with the 16mm camera, through developing in the dark-room, to montage—and the different aesthetic qualities examined.
Fee: 700 EUR (reduced: 540 EUR)

Maha Maamoun
AND WHAT DID THE ANIMAL SAY?
August 15–27, 2016
In her photographs, videos and films, Maha Maamoun, who lives in Cairo, addresses the form and function of images found in mainstream culture. Her approach tries to keep a balance between what is studied and what is intuitive, leaving scope for the incidental to play itself out. Her course focuses on the following questions. Why look at animals? How do we see them? Do we use them as symbols or proxies for other subjects? Is our interest in them driven by a desire to reach beyond the confines of our bodies, subjectivities, knowledge and practice?
Fee: 700 EUR (reduced: 540 EUR)
