2023W, Vorlesung und Übungen (VU), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S01569

Description

In this class, we trace the path of the development of recording technologies to examine the emergence of photographic images: From the early days in science to the fields of journalism, fashion, and advertising.

Using selected examples from the publication Manifeste! the work methods of various photographers are explored and the theories of the different eras discussed. The student’s own critical viewpoint should be sharpened through independent research of more recent approaches to photography.

The introductory course aims to provide basic knowledge of photographic approaches, to examine them from a gender perspective and to draw a thread through the history of image production in still and moving images.
