The seminar helps the students get oriented in current photographic creation by means of meeting selected artists and theoreticians, as well as visits exhibitions being followed by discussions. The conceived exhibition programme also includes exhibitions, in which photography blends together with other media, so that it is possible to understand the position of photography in the context of cotemporary visual art. Events and personalities of the broadest spectrum of Czech and Central-European visual arts are selected. The course aim is to extend the general view of the students and their contacts for specific people and institutions.
