Professor Lesley Lokko, Sumayya Vally, Sarah de Villiers and two current students will take you through the process, explaining how to combine text with images, what to show, what not to show . . . everything you need to gain access to the GSA! For a really good example of what's coming, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8EgQbuLfjw, a video by the University of Sydney, available on YouTube.

Critical Practice Seminar #2

In this two-day seminar, Visiting Research Fellow Chiara Ingrosso will show a project entitled The Citytellers by the Italian photographer and filmmaker Francesco Jodice, a trilogy about three different global cities: Sao Paolo, Aral and Dubai. The Citytellers explores the transformations of today’s megalopolises, particularly in terms of new social, political, economic and religious phenomena. The following day, students in the seminar group will explore parts of Johannesburg to make an adjunct short film to The Citytellers, ‘telling Johannesburg through the cinema.’
