Foto Forum, Bolzano/Bozen (Italy) Madamina il catalogo è questo – Leporello Workshop with Novella Oliana, Flaminia Masotti

Madamina, il catalogo è questo
An exploration of the plastic territories of the image through the leporello format
Curated by Novella Oliana and Flaminia Masotti

This course aims to develop a project and reflective approach on the image, space and gesture that leads to an editorial creation of a Leporello. We will create theoretical and practical paths starting from a methodological study based on contemporary visual processes. The objectives will be to acquire greater awareness of the visual process and of the way in which images work in the representation of concepts, interact in a transdisciplinary way to redefine the space of the creative process, and to reflect on the gesture and on the three-dimensional space of the page, which is constructed through folds, cuts or visual sequences. Lastly, we will acquire practical methodologies in editorial creation, reworking the classic Leporello format, and move from our ideas and imagination to the creation of a small project.
