Seminar

Details

The main focus of education at CFAD in the field of photography and video concentrates on three areas: research-based conceptual photography, raising questions about identity and the role of the artist in society, the position of the artist in relation to the understanding of art in the Western art world as well as the understanding of self in the Mena region.

A third focus examines the complex relationship between art and technology in the so-called post-digital age: explorations of conceptual media art and observations of media use.
Artists represented at Exposure will demonstrate this development through the projects on view: Photo series created in undergraduate courses, as well as video installations that derive their formal conception from the avant-garde, works that explore the influence of artificial intelligence on contemporary art, visualized music, staged photography, sound installations, and other experimental mixed-media projects.

Four students will discuss their perspectives and experiences with Tor Seidel and Jay Hetrick in a panel discussion.
Tor Seidel has been a lecturer and faculty member at CFAD since 2017 and is responsible for the photography and video program in the Fine Arts Department. Jay Hetrick is an art historian and philosopher who teaches art history and critical theory at CFAD.
