Katja and Olivier, docents of the European Master of Fine Art Photography, will look at very different forms of publications, contemporary positions as well as introduce various ideas of research and visual strategies. After an introduction of their own work and their curatorial approach to ANT!FOTO and the ANT!FOTO Manifiesto, different aspects of photographic concepts, different thoughts to photography and ideas of cooperating and collaborating will be discussed with all participants. Views on photography from an european and japanese perspective will be examined and discussed. In particular the participants are asked to introduce their work to Katja and Oliver (and the other workshop participants). Together they will explore and debate the concepts, develop strategies of presentation or publication of each work and will seek for possibilities how to realize these photographic works. The last evening will be filled with discussing photography during a »居酒屋が並んでいる Izakaya get-together«.
Behind ‚Böhm/Kobayashi‘ lurk the duo Katja Stuke and Oliver Sieber, who together cover an extensive range of personas: photographers and artists, curators and exhibition organizers, designers and art book editors. Yet as they move through their photographic cosmos, it is not always so easy to determine where one identity ends and the other begins.[…] Regardless, in their works and activities as artists and art facilitators they have long since become moderators of a very specific photographic culture.
