WHO IS IT FOR
This hands-on seminar is for artists working within visual narratives through any lens based media, including video, wishing to learn more about the appropriate output options available for their final project. Participants are requested to have a completed project or one close to completion – ready to be distributed. The goal is to leave with a solid distribution and output plan at the end of the seminar.
Selecting an output for your completed project is a crucial part of the project’s development, offering the opportunity to rethink your message as a whole, in relation to the medium and format you choose. Oftentimes, artists fail to identify the appropriate output for a project, automatically reaching for an exhibition or a book format, not having thought critically about this. A wrong decision can negatively impact the work, misrepresent and under-promote it, instead of developing and helping strengthen the artist’s practice and career.
In this hands-on seminar, Moritz Neumüller asks participants to present their works, guiding them through a series of conversations and intensive group crits, towards making considered decisions most appropriate and beneficial for their practice and artistic professional aims. Topics such as publishing, exhibiting, and alternative methods of communicating your work will be discussed. Upon completion, the participants will leave with an informed, reliable plan on the ideal and most suited output for their project.
