“ECAL Photography ” offers a selection of works produced by 58 young talents during their Photography Bachelor curriculum at ECAL in Lausanne, Switzerland, one of the world’s top art universities.
An art school is an image factory. New generations of artists are constantly emerging, joining the marathon of exhibitions and publications from the very first years of their creative lives. In this context, the art school has become a particularly attractive place for ambitious young artists. Here, students create freely, question the traditional genres, explore new territories, and experiment with and beyond their media. The works revealed by the “ECAL Photography” exhibition are bound to trace the beginnings of innovative practices in photography.
Images in the show were chosen by exhibition curator Nathalie Herschdorfer, who has developed several internationally acclaimed projects around emerging photography, as well as by Milo Keller, head of the Photography programme at ECAL, and Alexis Georgacopoulos, ECAL director. The scenography of the exhibition is created especially by Swiss designer Adrien Rovero.
The “ECAL Photography” book (296 pages, 385 images) supports this exhibition. The book is produced by art publishers Hatje Cantz, with a worldwide reputation for their catalogue of publications on photograph.
