Art Photography and its Markets covers photography as art from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day. It offers an expansive view of photography’s movement from the margins to the centre of the art world through the last century, and considers its place in the global contemporary art market today.
Students learn through lectures and discussions, visits to public, private and commercial collections and exhibitions, and to artists’ studios. Guest speakers include leading market experts, artists and curators. For practitioners and enthusiasts, the course has a dedicated Instagram feed and a historical techniques workshop where we will make our own tin-types.
