Geert Goiris Masterclass 2023

This masterclass provides one-on-one significant access over six months to one of the most interesting and dynamic photobook makers in contemporary photography, Geert Goiris. 


Geert has published seven monographic books with Roma publications Amsterdam: Czar Bomba, Lying Awake, Prolifération, Prophet, Peak Oil, 2020 and World without Us. His images have been exhibited at art institutions such as  Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam (2007), Wiels Contemporary Art Center in Brussels (2010), Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2010), Hamburger Kunsthalle in Hamburg (2011), Le Nouveau Musée National de Monaco (NMNM) (2012), Museum M in Leuven (2013), the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago (US) and Centre Pompidou-Metz (2016). Geert teaches at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. 

The master class focuses on the different steps involved in completing an autonomous photographic project. During the masterclass participants will acquire the necessary skills, experience and understanding to bring a creative project to fruition.

Each student will get one-to-one guidance, alongside benefitting from small group discussion and the sharing of ideas and processes.

The focus and aim of the masterclass is for students to have a palpable outcome, either in the form of a book dummy, an exhibition design, or a professional digital portfolio.

The masterclass is a mix of group sessions, individual sessions, and the building of an online archive (through a personal folder on Google Docs) which will be accessed by Geert and your peers to share relevant references and exchange constructive critique.
