Berlin Stories: Day 6

The final day seen the students and staff gain access to C/O Berlin, the most established gallery in Berlin dedicated to Photography. Co-Curator and project manager, Ann-Christin Bertrand, met the students and took them on a guided tour of the currently un-furbished new gallery space. Having moved from the former imperial Postfuhramt in Berlin-Mitte, C/O Berlin relocated into an old American cultural centre building -Amerkia Haus- built just after the second world war. This unique opportunity to catch a glimpse inside the walls of a gallery space prior to is refurbishment is one that the general vistor to Berlin would never get to see.

The attitude and willingness to engage with the students of Ann-Christin Bertrand capped off a truly memorable and productive trip to the ever fascinating German Capital.

Many thanks to all the students and staff involved for making it such a sucessful week.






Photostories and Photobooks

As part of a 1st yr module that is focussed on producing multimedia photostories and self-published photobooks, the students visited the Artists’ Books Collection at Manchester Metropolitan University.  The archive there is such a rich and local resource for a range of innovative and exciting different examples of photographers and artists that work in some way with printed publications.  All the students found it a very inspiring trip and will definitely help to develop their own practice.
