En Foco Releases Newly Designed Nueva Luz vol. 20:1 Spotlighting the Bronx Women’s Photo Collective

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Layza Garcia & Bill Aguado
Email address: info@enfoco.org
High-resolution images available upon request

NL 20-1_CoverImage

Bronx, NY | July 2016 – Nueva Luz vol. 20:1, the revitalized and redesigned photographic journal from En Foco is now available in print and online. As with past issues of Nueva Luz, the magazine has illustrated the provocative, the avant-garde and the perspicacious photographic prognostications and philosophies from photographers of color who probe the heart of humanity through their lens.   This newly released and rebranded special issue is no different than an exploratory probe into the human psyche of inner-space.

En Foco and by extension Nueva Luz, has always sought to include and expand the parameters of visual presentation and has challenged concepts of identity for and about photographers of color.

Curated by Juanita Lanzo and designed by Nestor Otero, this edition of Nueva Luz features three dynamic…

Black Mountain School. Open call Residency

Black Mountain School, is an experiment in education and community in the spirit of Black Mountain College, the residence was open in May 2016. The new school, which has been founded by two North Carolina artists, is inspired by Black Mountain College, where Fuller was a key faculty member.

https://www.amazon.com/Black-Mountain-College-Experiment-Press/dp/0262518457

Black Mountain School cites extreme tuition costs, corporatized profit-driven learning, and a one-size-fits-all curriculum as the reasons to resurrect a school that embodies the principles that governed Black Mountain College. The initial two summer sessions will each offer 22 classes and run for two weeks. Reviving the same communal lifestyle at Black Mountain College, thirty instructors will live, work, and create with the students.

Classes at the school range from theoretical and text-based to hands-on and outdoors. There are no academic prerequisites for enrolling as a student, and those participating will also have the opportunity to teach if so desired. Students and guest lecturers at BMS are young and old, and come from within institutions (such as Wendy Woon from the Museum of Modern Art) and outside of them. Drawing on the original Black Mountain College, students help with different administrative tasks, while staff are free to take classes.

CLASS STRUCTURE:

When it came time to develop a framework for the curriculum at the Black Mountain School, it quickly became apparent that a flexible approach would be needed to encompass the full spectrum of learning opportunities we wanted the school to provide. The solution was to adopt a multi-tiered curriculum in which class structure varies depending on the nature of the class and the goals of both teachers and learners. Fittingly, it was nature that provided a template in the form of the four principle states of matter:

Solid courses are fixed in nature and emphasize the acquisition of concrete skills. As such Solid courses are most like conventional classes with set schedules and a sequential approach to learning. Because of these traits, Solid courses will likely require an established class roster with regular attendance.
Liquid courses are a combination of structured and self-directed learning. While Liquid courses still emphasize the roles of teacher and student, both parties are empowered (and encouraged) to collaborate with each other in defining the scope and scale of the class experience. Liquid courses are not restricted to a specific duration or roster, they take on whatever form the collective will of the class dictates.

Gas courses are experimental, free form, and student-driven learning experiences. Unlike Solid and Liquid courses, Gas courses derive their structure entirely from students, empowering them to assume the role of experts and educators on any topics or ideas they are interested in exploring. A Gas course can be a recurring activity or an impromptu event, it can be a skill-based workshop or a forum of equals.

Plasma courses are intensive, experiential, and event-based learning experiences that are intended to punctuate the Black Mountain School curriculum. Singular in nature, Plasma courses provide unique opportunities for both teachers and students to share and explore through a broad range of performances, workshops, and events.

Deadline approaching for Workshop: Photography and Knowledge. Joan Villaplana. Shanghai, 21-22 March, 2016

We continue our workshop program of IED-Madrid with Joan Villaplana, at the Central Studios in Shanghai, on March 21 and 22, 2016.

CONCEPT

The more the new technologies get in our life, the more we relate with reality through images. Today, an important part of the knowledge we obtain comes from photographs. But, does Photography really provide knowledge through its visual language? What kind of reality does Photography create, or rather, recreate? Are we moving away from reality, or are the images our new reality?

As images are playing an ever more important role in our daily life, it seems an urgent matter to revisit, and to rethink existing relations between Photography and Knowledge.

This workshop proposes to discuss about existing relations between the photographer’s (artist’s) point of view and the reality of the spectator: What is the role of the photographic medium in this encounter between the image-maker and the observer?

During the first day, participants will learn about the abstract and controversial idea of “reality” and about how new technologies have managed to re-shape this concept, once and for all.

The second day will be used for a more profound immersion into the subject of reality and knowledge in photography. Using a wide selection of works from contemporary Western photographers as examples and embodiments, the workshop will update classical theories about photography and truth. New approaches towards a more suitable theory of photography aesthetics will be presented and discussed.

 

WHO SHOULD APPLY

The workshop is addressed to both students and professionals in the field of photography: Photographers and artists in any field of photography or Publishing Sector. Graduates or students of Fine Arts, Audiovisual Communications, Publicity, Journalism, Art History, or Humanities who want to specialize in the theory and practice of Fine Art Photography.

The purpose of the workshop is to introduce assistants to the contemporary aesthetic concepts and their applicability in non-Western contexts.

Date: March 21 & 22, 2015.

Duration: 2 afternoons

 

Minimum Participants required in each workshop : 7

Maximum Participants: 30

Tuition fee: 500 RMB

To participate please write to:  a.pacifico@madrid.ied.es
