Master Class Workshop “Image/Series/Project/Work” with Moritz Neumüller

How does a series of images become an artistic project? How does a piece of video become video art? The purpose of art, visual narratives and all other forms of creative endeavor is to be perceived by others. In terms of images (still or moving), this means publishing, screening, exhibiting. To get your work out there. However, the laws of the art world and the rules of (self-)  publishing are hard to understand. Moreover, they often seem obscure and at times even surreal. How do we find a theme, a context, a conceptual frame for our projects? When is a project ready for exposure?

This workshop is addressed to artists working with visual narratives through any lens-based media who wish to learn more about the possibilities of presenting their work to a wider audience. Using a hands-on methodology, participants will learn about the challenges and benefits of publishing, exhibiting, screening or staging their work.
