Photography

Photography is the most popular visual medium of our age — at the same time, it is also an important instrument of artistic discourse. In recognition of this, but also of historic and cultural achievements, especially in the 20th century, the photography courses at the HGB are characterised by an openness that conveys the process of generating images in analogue and digital form and focus on a spectrum of artistic expression that goes beyond the initial limits of the medium: photography as an image-generating medium, also in conjunction with texts and books, moving images in film and video, as space-oriented installation etc. Developing a personal artistic stance and image language is a fundamental aim of the degree course and clearly sets it apart from other photo or communication design programmes. The teaching photo artists structure the ten-semester degree course with lectures, seminars, excursions and projects. The diploma course culminates in a public degree show, where the students present their work. The foundational course is taught by Torsten Hattenkerl and Annette Kisling, the four specialist classes of the main course are taught by Tina Bara, Loretta Fahrenholz, Dr. Ines Schaber (subsitute professor) and Heidi Specker.
