Online Learning Class via Zoom

This workshop examines the use of the archive in contemporary photography. Our cultural memory lives in our archives. Both public and private, the way that archives are made available to us and the way we utilize them provides feedback for how culture progresses.

Over a six week period, David O. Alexhougie will help you build a conceptual framework for understanding and utilizing your archive as image-making material.  Some of the questions we will ask are: How does an archive educate? What is the role of privacy in building archives? How does history and the way we understand it affect identity?

This class will be split up into three subjects that will have three accompanying assignments: 
1. The art of the mixtape – series sequencing and the artist as a taste-maker
2. Historical fiction – re-enactment as an exercise in narrative story telling
3. The cut edge – deconstructing collage methodologies

Having completed this assignments, students will walk away with a greater understanding of how archives can impact their artistic approach to photography.
