How to teach post-photography
— mini-conference held as part of the FAMUGRAPHY II exhibition

Monday, June 27, at 4 pm

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.

Participants:

Michal Kalhous (FU OU Ostrava)

Silvie Milková (FUD UJEP Ústí nad Labem)

Michaela Pašteková (VŠVU Bratislava)

Štěpánka Šimlová (FAMU Prague)

Aleksandra Vajd (UMPRUM Prague)
