Master Lens Based Media is a master-level course within the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam committed to lens-based image-making as an art and craft.The program focuses on approaching animation, photography, and the full range of contemporary cinematic forms as a single expanded field. We support new forms of analysis and creative practice that treat images as plastic, open to recombination, manipulation and shaping. Master level researchers explore the myriad ways that lens-based media art might use these new potentials in innovative ways to engage contemporary audiences.
