Details on the course content (applies in this implementation): 

This workshop is an exploration of serial photography. Seriality is so embedded in the photographic expression that as a concept it is almost self evident. Despite this, seriality seems to escape any attempts for a definition. What is a photo series, anyway? What is the relevance of seriality to our current visual culture of digital image flows?  Instead as a form, the course approaches seriality as an artistic method of expression and/or epistemology. The aim is to critically assess the use of this method as well as to find meaningful tools for artistic practice. 

The course begins with an introductory lecture. Other forms of learning are reading the given texts and group discussions based on them, group assignments and discussions, as well as presenting students' own artistic work. 

The course has two photographic assignments; a group work and an individual final work which are carried out during the course.
