The Photographic Artist´s Book: Capture and Disseminate (60 ECTS credits)
The Photographic Artist´s Book is a one-year full-time course at advanced level that primarily caters for professional practitioners in the fields of art and photography. The course interweaves theory and practice in order to develop a photographic material in relation to publications in a broad sense. Based on aspects such as democracy, activism and history, the course examines various strategies for publication.

In addition to the participants’ independent work to develop and finalise a photographic material in relation to publishing, teaching is conducted in the form of group seminars, individual and group tutorials, lectures and workshops. A study trip in Europe will also be arranged, including lectures, visits and meetings.
 

The aim of the course is that each student should find a form for publishing their respective photographic material. The publishing format may be a book, but the course is also open for other forms of publication in which new technologies present new opportunities.

For admission to the course an artistic Bachelors degree or a Bachelors degree in relevant subjects or equivalent is required.

Course description
Scheduled activities take place two days every second week comprising segments in which all students participate in seminars, lectures, tutorials and workshops. In addition, students work independently to develop and finalise a photographic material in relation to the publication. During the autumn term a study trip, partially paid for by the student, will be arranged. There are also opportunities to participate in various courses in the school’s workshops, such as bookbinding and different printing techniques, prepress and Indesign. See here for information about the workshops

The course will end with a public presentation in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts’ library.
