a) Develop and deepen the knowledge that crosses the practice of Photography with other artistic disciplines; contributing, on the one hand, to an understanding of photography as part of a broader cultural process and, on the other, the phenomena of multiculturalism and hybridity characteristic of contemporary thought;
b) Intensify the relationship between the work and the context, be it the context of production or that of visibility;
c) Provide analysis instruments adapted to a reflection on the practice of photography in a broad and inclusive sense in relation to other artistic disciplines, so that students can build a written, articulate, solid and personal discourse having as a starting point a referent personal imagery or that of others.

1. Operative fields and definition of concepts, actions and methodologies having as a starting point the production side contributing to the construction of an artistic “praxis” in a multicultural and hybrid territory;
