Photography class, Heidi Specker

The class is characterised by constructive art criticism. In this, the differentiation and challenging of own pictures is a central element on the path to evaluating art. The class is an open area, in which to clarify references and formulate an own position. The presentation and discussion of own and third-party works forms the principal basis. A common approach aims to open up formats whilst serving as a tangible method at the same time. In addition to the class room and the college, visits to institutions, museums and collections serve the orientation and localisation of art as much as the gallery or the artist in the studio. The media of artist's book and film essential to photography round off the prospectus, which is both historic and contemporary, fundamentally serving to hone perception.
