Photography Workshop with Dinu Li in Madrid

Dinu Li. Madrid – Mapping the Invisible

————> versión en español abajo <————

The book Invisible Cities (1972) by Italo Calvino explores the relationship between Marco Polo and Kublai Khan, as the Venetian merchant adopts the role of confidant to the aging emperor and thus, shares the impressions of many Mongolian cities he has visited. Due to the physical enormity of the empire, Khan himself could only experience the vastness and minute details of some of these places through Polo’s eyes and words, and through his own imagination. Calvino’s book therefore, offers an alternative approach to thinking about cities, how they are formed and how they function.

Taking Calvino’s intentions as a point of departure, students will be lead through an intense 2-day workshop of lectures, presentations and tutorials to develop individual photographic representations of their city, Madrid, and its people. Students will be residents in Madrid, or come from outside, as does Dinu Li. Together, they will create a mosaic of viewpoints, which live from the contrast, responding to the city’s very own qualities. Participants will contest the tourist gaze, to subvert the exotica and look at Madrid from many angles, in order to perceive the city in new and challenging ways.

In this assignment, students critically engage with the different forms of practice manifest in the works of key influential artists both contemporary and historical. Case studies including John Smith and Simon Faithfull will be analysed to determine modes of practice that reconfigures the symbiotic relationship between man and place.

The 2-day programme places an emphasis on developing a strong visual language as opposed to demonstrations on camera operations and computer post-production techniques.

Due to an evening commencement of the photographic assignment, students may wish to consider the use of tripods for nighttime shoots, especial for landscapes and cityscapes.

Student’s 5-minute presentations should include a tight selection of images from the project brief, supported if possible, by images from their own portfolios.

Brief curriculum vitae Dinu Li

Dinu Li is a British based artist working across a range of media including film, installation, performance, photography and video. Throughout his practice, Li places himself in a variety of circumstances, responding to his immediate surroundings in an attempt to understand the many cultures he encounters. Li’s output offers a visceral reaction to the world around us within the context of the times we live in. He explores the nuances of the everyday – its many rituals, routines and patterns, in relation to local and global concerns. Recent works have been situated between modes of representation, the vernacular, specific geographic and historical contexts and the intersection between the personal and the political.

 Li’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including: the 53rd Venice Biennale; the 3rd Bucharest Biennale; Bildmuseet, Umea, Sweden; Oldenburger Kunstverein, Germany; Alternative Space Loop, Seoul, Korea; Danielle Arnaud, London; Chalk Horse, Sydney through Para/Site Hong Kong; Petra Rietz Salon, Berlin; SVA, New York through Artprojx; Rivington Place, London; White Space 798, Beijing and Christian Roellin, Zurich. He has undertaken residencies with OCAT in Shenzhen, China; ArtSway Production Residency in Hampshire and Chengdu, China; and a Cornerhouse and Space Artists Exchange Residency in Central Asia. He has been a guest speaker for Tate Modern, the Victoria and Albert Museum, The British Museum and is a visiting lecturer across educational institutions in the UK and abroad.

 

IED Madrid Photography Workshops

Two years ago, the IED Madrid launched its European Master of Fine Art Photography, which has already become one of the most ambitious educational proposals in artistic photography in Europe. Therefore, we have decided to open this prestigious program for students of all disciplines, to give them the opportunity to participate in some of the highlights of the program.

The first of these workshops is among the most popular ones, with the Master Students: Dinu Li’s interdisciplinary take on the global and the local in contemporary art photography. This class will help students in photography, as well as designers and curators a vast toolkit for understanding (and capturing) today’s world. Dinu Li is an experienced speaker and known for his empathic teaching methods. This will be a weekend full of new insights, personal experiences and creative outbursts.

Workshop de fotografía con Dinu Li en el IED Madrid

Dinu Li_IED Madrid_Máster Europeo de Fotografía
Taller de Dinu Li durante el Máster Europeo de Fotografía de Autor, 2011

Hace dos años, el IED Madrid puso en marcha su Máster Europeo de Fotografía de Autor, convertido en una de las propuestas más ambiciosas en la educación de la fotografía artística en Europa. Por esta razón, hemos decidido abrir este prestigioso programa a estudiantes de todas las disciplinas con el fin de darles la oportunidad de participar en algunos de los talleres más destacados del programa.

El primero de estos talleres es uno de los más populares entre los estudiantes del máster: el enfoque interdisciplinar de Dinu Li sobre lo global y lo local en la fotografía artística contemporánea. Esta clase aporta a los estudiantes de fotografía, así como a diseñadores y comisarios, un conjunto de herramientas para la comprensión del mundo actual de la mano de un profesor experimentado y conocido por sus empáticos métodos de enseñanza.

Disfruta de un fin de semana (20 y 21 de julio) lleno de nuevas ideas, experiencias personales y explosiones creativas.

EN QUÉ CONSISTE EL TALLER
Madrid – Mapping the invisible

El libro Las ciudades invisibles (1972) de Italo Calvino explora la relación entre Marco Polo y Kublai Khan, en la cual el mercader veneciano adopta el papel de confidente del anciano emperador y, por tanto, comparte sus impresiones sobre muchas de las ciudades de Mongolia que ha visitado. Debido a la gran magnitud física del imperio, el mismo Khan sólo puede experimentar la inmensidad y los pequeños detalles de algunos de estos lugares a través de los ojos y las palabras de Polo, y a través de su propia imaginación. El libro de Calvino, por lo tanto, ofrece un enfoque alternativo para pensar en las ciudades, cómo se forman y cómo funcionan.

Tomando las intenciones de Calvino como punto de partida, los alumnos serán guiados a través de un taller intensivo de dos días de clases, presentaciones y tutorías para desarrollar individualmente representaciones fotográficas de la ciudad de Madrid y de su gente.

Los estudiantes serán residentes en Madrid, o de fuera, como el propio Dinu Li. Juntos crearán un mosaico de puntos de vista, que se nutrirá del contraste, lo que responde a las cualidades propias de la ciudad. Los participantes retarán la mirada del turista, para subvertir el exotismo y mirar Madrid desde muchos ángulos, con el fin de percibir la ciudad de maneras nuevas y desafiantes.

En esta tarea, los estudiantes analizarán de forma crítica las diferentes prácticas manifiestas en las obras de los principales artistas influyentes, tanto contemporáneos como históricos. Los casos de estudio como John Smith y Simon Faithfull serán analizados para determinar las prácticas que reconfiguran la relación simbiótica entre el hombre y el lugar.

El programa de 2 días da prioridad al desarrollo de un lenguaje visual sólido frente a las demostraciones técnicas sobre operaciones de cámara y post-producción.

Debido a que la tarea fotográfica comenzará por la tarde-noche, los alumnos podrían considerar el uso de trípodes para las tomas nocturnas, en el caso de querer tomar paisajes urbanos y rurales.

Las presentaciones de 5 minutos de los alumnos deben incluir una selección coherente de imágenes del proyecto, apoyadas en lo posible por imágenes de sus propios porfolios.

Currículum Vítae Dinu Li

Artista afincado en Inglaterra que trabaja con diferentes medios como el cine, la instalación, la performance, la fotografía y el vídeo. A lo largo de su práctica, Li se sitúa en múltiples circunstancias en respuesta a su entorno inmediato, en un intento de entender las muchas culturas con las que se encuentra. Como resultado, ofrece una reacción visceral al mundo que nos rodea en el contexto de los tiempos que vivimos. Li explora los matices de la vida cotidiana: sus rituales, rutinas y patrones en relación a las preocupaciones locales y globales.

Sus trabajos recientes se han situado entre los modos de representación, lo autóctono, los contextos específicos geográficos e históricos y la intersección entre lo personal y lo político.

El trabajo de Li ha sido expuesto nacional e internacionalmente: Bienal de Venecia; Bienal de Bucarest; Bildmuseet, Umea, Suecia; Oldenburger Kunstverein, Alemania; Alternative Space Loop, Seúl, Corea; Danielle Arnaud, Londres; Chalk Horse, Sydney a través de Para/Site Hong Kong; Petra Rietz Salon, Berlín; SVA, Nueva York a través de Artprojx; Rivington Place, Londres; White Space 798, Pekín y Christian Roellin, Zúrich. Asimismo, ha realizado residencias con OCAT en Shenzhen, China; una residencia de producción ArtSway en Hampshire y Chengdu, China; y otra residencia de intercambio Cornerhouse y Artists Space en Asia Central. Además, ha sido conferenciante invitado en la Tate Modern, el Victoria and Albert Museum, el Museo Británico y es profesor visitante en diversas instituciones educativas en el Reino Unido y en el extranjero.
