Photography Masters

Folkwang University of the Arts

Photography Masters is showing selected final works by graduates of the Photography Studies and Practice master's programme at the Folkwang University of the Arts. In their works, the six positions negotiate different modes of presentation and techniques of photography and thus unite a broad spectrum of current reflection on the medium.

With Photography Masters, the Folkwang University of the Arts and Museum Folkwang are continuing their successful collaboration, which began in April 2016 with the Stopover exhibition series. The institutions are thus establishing an important platform for young artists who are still at the beginning of their careers. The works presented by Lea Fleck, Xiaole Ju, Elena Kruglova, Ardelle Schneider, Samuel Solazzo and Anna Traskalik(ová) show a wide range of artistic and media-based explorations in the expanded field of photography. All participating artists have successfully completed their studies at the Folkwang University of the Arts in September 2023. A four-member jury (Kerstin Meincke, temporary Academic Councillor, Institute for Art and Art Science, University of Duisburg-Essen, Prof. Elke Seeger, Prof. Dr Steffen Siegel, both Folkwang University of the Arts, Thomas Seelig, Head of the Photographic Collection of Museum Folkwang) selected what they considered to be the best Master's degrees for this exhibition during the Folkwang Finale graduation exhibition (autumn 2023, SANAA building on the Folkwang Campus Welterbe Zollverein).
