Study Abroad Trips

Photography should be taught not only as a practice limited to galleries and museums, but as an object, interface and event that both shapes and exposes culture. Because of this, photography is uniquely situated to engage with many other disciplines outside of traditional art practice, to be politically active, to continually question its aesthetics and technologies, and to offer opportunity for collaboration and discourse among the arts, sciences, and humanities. To support these goals, I have led collaborative trips to Berlin, Documenta and the Venice Biennale with experimental film faculty, and have recently run a study abroad course to Documenta 14 and the Biennale this past summer. Below is documentation from the exhibition that was organized by students from the Summer 2017 study abroad: Terra Incognita. In the students' words: "Terra Incognita is an exhibition in the form of a national pavillion for the post citizen. Terra Incognita is a term that’s derived from a cartographic tradition for uncharted lands. This exhibition functions as a projection for these uncharted lands using mobile unfixed structures." Students also collaboratively produced a "zine" that included writing about their work and connected images and texts.
