f3 – Masterclass Making Books!

Nadine Barth 

12. June 2021 13. June 2021

The f– MASTERCLASS MAKING BOOKS! is aimed at photographers and photo artists who are currently working on their own book project. It can still be in the early stages or already be advanced. The passionate bookmaker Nadine Barth, who advises, among others, the renowned art book publisher Hatje Cantz in the field of photography, accompanies the participants’ projects for 10 months.

The 10 teaching days (5 blocks of 2 days each) revolve around all aspects that are essential for the successful realisation of a book project: the editing, the story line, the text/image relationship, the design as well as the technical equipment of the book (papers, printing processes, bindings). Nadine Barth imparts her extensive knowledge of all questions of cooperation with publishers and self-publishing in a practical manner against the background of her experience in more than 25 years of work in the industry.

The aim of the f3-– MASTERCLASS MAKING BOOKS! is to further develop the participants’ book projects in an intensive dialogue between the lecturer and the group. At the end of the masterclass, the participants will present the resulting books to a broad audience in the form of a presentation or a book dummy at f3 – freiraum für fotografie.

Nadine Barth, is a curator and publicist. She worked as a journalist and gallery owner for many years before founding her agency barthouse culture concepts for art and communication in 2006. She is the editor of over 80 publications on photography and fashion, e.g. Vanishing Landscapes, 2008; German Fashion Design, 2011; Daniel Josefsohn: OK DJ, 2014; Andres Serrano: Salvation, 2016; Jean Molitor: bau1haus, 2018; Stuart Franklin: Analogies, 2019, Roger Ballen: Roger the Rat, 2020, and curated international exhibitions, most recently for Fotografiska New York: Miles Aldridge, Virgin Mary, Supermarkets, Popcorn (from May 2021).
