Led by Sophy Rickett and Bettina von Zwehl.

The latest in our series of Masterclasses, this PARC event is a regular feature in the Moose biennale, led in 2015 by Anna Fox, and in previous years by artists including Broomberg & Chanarin and Clare Strand.

Sophy Rickett and Bettina von Zwehl have substantial international reputations, have been included in numerous group and solo shows, have published monographs and been the recipients of major commissions.

This masterclass is inspired by Album 31, a photographic and text based project by photographic artists Sophy Rickett and Bettina von Zwehl. In Album 31 the artists revisit decades of their own ‘outbox’ material, as a means to reconsider the decisions that led to each rejection. Album 31 has allowed the artists to continue their own individual practices while periodically re-configuring them together. In this day long masterclass, Sophy and Bettina will spend the morning discussing their individual practices, and the nature of their collaboration, before proposing Album 31 as a methodological process.

In the afternoon, participants will be invited to test the practical and conceptual principles the artists established during the development of Album 31.

The artists will introduce a framework through which participants may explore the history of their own decisions, as well as imagine a different set of outcomes, possibilities, and potential legacies.

Please bring a carrier bag or two of material you have produced as part of your practice, but that you subsequently rejected. This might include prints, contact prints, notes, test strips, research material + anything else, ideally combining recently rejected material with stuff from the mists of time…

Organised by Dr Corinne Silva, this is the latest in the ongoing series of masterclasses organized by the Photography and the Archive Research Centre (PARC), and is open to both UAL and external participants. This is an intensive and rewarding masterclass, and much in demand. Designed for advanced practitioners (internal or external.)
