Moritz Neumüller, curator of PhotoIreland and director of European Master of Fine Art Photography presents the International Photobook Course that will start in September 2011, in Madrid. This course is organized by the European Institute of Design and students are expected to produce a Dummy version of a photobook for an international target audience. Workshop teachers include prominent artists and theorists, such as Andreas Müller-Pohle, Sean Hillen, Irina Tchmyreva, Timothy Prus and Katja Stuke & Oliver Sieber. The project counts with the expertise of Martin Parr, and students will get an inside view in the making and launch of the long expected Latin American Photo Book.
The proposition of the International Photobook Course surfaced in the wake of the European Master of Fine Art Photography, a referential course based on the excellence of its faculty and the focus of an artistic project in the European environment. Students include emerging talents such as Nikita Pirogov (Russia), Juan de Marcos (Spain), Wawi Navarroza (The Philippines) and Alena Zhandarova (Russia). Visit the students’ blog to find out more.
