Photography MA/MFA

http://www2.mmu.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/taught/2014/11267/

In the MA/MFA Photography, you will be encouraged to test and push the boundaries of the photographic medium. You will explore approaches to visual narrative, including the photographic and cinematic, and evaluate the relationship between photography and texts/sound/space.
You will primarily use digital and analogue photographic technologies, but may also develop your practical skills through media such as moving image and bookbinding. Particular themes will explore photography in relation to context: portfolio, book art, gallery, screen and installed space. You will develop your own philosophy to photography and are expected to consider and evaluate your work in relation to the  current photographic discourse on the shifting genres and boundaries caused by advancing technologies.

Contemporary Curating MA/MFA

The MA/MFA Contemporary Curating explores the notion of exhibition practice in contemporary culture, and considers curatorial methods and strategies in the context of the gallery and museum, as well as in projects such as biennials, public art works and commissions. The programme is interdisciplinary in its structure and content and considers ways in which different kinds of art works and projects are mediated through the exhibition process. It shares the interests of the Research Councils’ strategic theme of Capitalising on the UK’s cultural assets.
 The shifting relationship between artist-institution-curator-critic/writer forms a central element to the course, included in this will be a consideration of the implications of cultural theory to contemporary practice. The programme explores the potential of seeing curating as something which can be applied to different forms of knowledge, this could be through publication; symposia; conferences; events and interventions. In this way, the role of the curator could be seen as a mediator of art works; objects and information. In addition to the taught element, gallery visits and exhibition analysis will form an integral part of the programme.

    Contemporary Visual Culture MA/MFA

    This interdisciplinary subject explores the meanings and effects of visual images and ways of looking. Through its core elements, options and route specific seminars, the programme examines the status of the visual in a society that is becoming increasingly saturated with visual technologies and interrogates the ways that images contribute to the formation of identities and social environments.
     You will be encouraged to engage in a critical and creative approach to the subject. The MA provides opportunities for the production of a wide variety of academic writing as well as possibilities to develop critical thinking through visual practice.  The programme encourages a high degree of independent research that will culminate in either a dissertation or a project combining written and visual material.
