Workshop in Ravenna

Registration is now open for the workshop ‘From printed material to artists’ book’ that Joachim Schmid and I will teach at Osservatorio Fotografico in Ravenna. The workshop takes place on April 8 & 9, during the book festival Fahrenheit 39. Find the details below. You can register until March 6.

The workshop starts with a discussion of various strategies of using found texts and images, particularly from existing printed matter such as ads, newspapers, magazines, books, postcards etcetera. Based on this, participants are invited to mine the space of the city for printed matter that they would like to explore. The workshop focuses on experimenting with methods of using the materials that are found and seeing how they could be used to create one’s own work. Rather than aiming at creating a completed project the two days will aim at triggering new ideas. Participants will come up with a draft or proposal for a short bookwork.

April 8/9 2016, 11.00 – 18.00

Maximum of 15 participants

In English (participants should have a good working knowledge of the language)

Workshop fees: 250 €

Applications must be sent to: info@osservatoriofotografico.it
