German perfectionism in photographic art
This seminar is aimed at two main topics. It’s first part is concentrated on some of the main figures in contemporary photographic art, answering the questions why are their works sold for millions of dollars and which are the main factors for this. The second part of the seminar is about the specifics of the curators’ and photographs’ jobs, what possibilities could a curator give to a photographer and why are these jobs linked together. Examples for all contemporary forms of presentation, and how to make the most adequate choice of presentation form, having in mind the idea, format and motives.
