Now that I have completed all my semester tasks and we have summed up the courses together, I am ready to give you a summary of what I have learned and experienced.
With the help and constructive criticism of my fellow students and professors, I have learned how to take my photography further in the desired direction. Now I know that I am strong in theory and conception, but still, have to learn how to better visualize my thoughts.
In the courses of the first master semester I got to know new possible directions, which I can take as a photographer. I now have the feeling that I can better understand the art market. I also now have an overview of how I can apply for sponsorship for my master's thesis from sponsors or other institutions and how to approach galleries. This will certainly take on a more important role after I graduate than I thought it would in my Bachelor's degree about my career choice, which I had seen even less strongly in the direct artistic field during my first degree.
At the Berlin campus, I got to know students from a wide variety of disciplines. The exchange with them has encouraged me to pursue my topics further, and I have found new exciting questions and perspectives that are worth pursuing in the coming semesters.
I will use the lecture-free time to reflect and photograph some semester projects privately once again. In this way, I will be able to directly implement the insights I have gained. In addition, I have some project ideas that I would like to get going and that will help me to ask better questions and implement my concepts more clearly.
I am very curious to see how I will develop further in the second semester in Berlin - which projects I will pursue, which I will possibly put aside and which skills I would like to further strengthen. I will also be taking you on one of my photographic expeditions in the video at the end of the summer semester! I'll keep you up to date!
