Course: The Possibilities of the Photographic Body

Mondays, 21 October to 25 November, 18.30–20.00

Experiment with the role of the body in photography in this six-week course led by artist Tom Lovelace

This workshop series examines contemporary approaches to the compelling and ever-present subject of the body within photographic practice. Each session will include lectures, group discussion, practical activities and readings. Using the body as a starting point, you will explore contemporary photographic practice through a range of themed sessions including the digital body, performance, architecture and gendered forms. There will be opportunity for participants to share and discuss their own research and artwork throughout the course.


Tom Lovelace is a London based artist, working at the intersection of photography, sculpture and performance. Central themes to his research and visual inquiry encompass the collaborative histories of photography, the semantics of the everyday and the role of Minimalism within contemporary visual culture. International residencies include: Yorkshire Sculpture Park, UK (2017); Lendi Projects, Switzerland (2015); European Capital of Culture, Aarhus, Denmark (2013); and the Anna Mahler International Foundation, Italy (2012). Lovelace studied Photography at the Arts University Bournemouth before reading Art History at Goldsmiths College, University of London. He is a visiting tutor at the Royal College of Art, London.
