Since approximately the turn of the millennium, we can see fundamental changes in photography: with the arrival of digital technology as well as the continuous expansion of its artistic scope and its dissolution into and interconnection with many other art forms.
How can a university educational program, often based on the modernist premise of media autonomy and its own reflection, react to such a situation? How do you connect professional technical skills with orientation in a broader artistic operation?
This mini-conference with contributions from representatives of the most important university photography programs should indicate the state of contemporary teaching methodologies for photography in the former Czechoslovakia. A moderated discussion will follow the short contributions (max. 10 minutes each). The conference will also be shown online.
