Inaugurated in 2011, the teaching venue in via Giardini covers four floors, designed to offer a genuine production and experimentation centre. As well as two classrooms fitted out to host lessons, the teaching venue of the Fondazione Fotografia Modena offers student all the facilities necessary to broaden and develop their research.

Computer lab

A lab made available to students on a daily basis, used both for technical lessons or for individual work. With 10 iMacs and software for the post-production of images and video, it also features three PRO units connected to a professional printer and scanner.

DARK ROOM Complete with six magnifiers up to 10x12cm, the workshop dedicated to analogical photography is split up into two separate environments in order to facilitate the various negative processes, from the development stage to the final printing.

VIDEO/PHOTOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT Available to teachers, students and artists in residence, the school offers a vast range of work tools: analogical and digital film cameras, from small to medium formats through to the view camera, a set of flashes and continuous lights, stands and tripods.

SET ROOM Equipped like a real photography studio, the set room’s c. 40m2 make it possible to create sets for still life or portrait images, or even video-making.

ATELIER A space run by the students themselves makes it possible to check on the preparation phases of their own works, as well as experimenting with various exhibition techniques. Over the course of the year, the atelier also hosts real exhibitions open to the general public.

LIBRARY AND VIDEO LIBRARY The continually expanding library features over one thousand volumes on photography: monographs of the most important Italian and international artists, catalogues and essays, ranging from historical to modern-day photography. There is also a collection of around 100 video-interviews featuring the artists present in the collection, as well as other key representatives from the art world.
