During the Photography course at Kingston University, you will develop your own practice-led research, and share with us an enquiry into the expanded definition of the photographic medium in a variety of forms including analogue and digital, new media and technology, still and moving image, installation, performance and engagements with the archive.
In exploring the photographic medium we encourage a rich interdisciplinary approach that crosses the boundaries between forms, disciplines and subject matters. Our modules are designed to help you become an independent practitioner who is able to speak across a range of practices and theories and find your own practically resolved and theoretically informed practice.
What will you study?
On the course photography is understood as a medium in its widest sense (analogue and digital, new media and technology, still and moving image, installation, performance and engagements with the archive) with the course located within the new department of film and photography in one of the oldest art schools in the UK. Students on the MA have access to all art school workshops including 3-D sculpture, printmaking, animation, bookmaking as well as our new state-of-the art film and photo facilities. The working agenda is towards experimentation and expanded boundaries of the photographic with students practice evolving in diverse ways.
Students are taught to research and conceptualise their work so that it is both rigorous and reflectively informed. The range of critical theory introduced is not limited to discussions around the photographic but extends across post-colonial theory, globalization, environmentalism, social justice issues, queer theory and gender-based debates, privacy and surveillance, politics of the internet and technological aspects of the photographic medium.
