6 Academies is the kick off for a series of annual exhibitions, hosted by the Gerrit Rietveld Academie/Amsterdam, ZHDK/Zurich, ENSAD/Paris, FH/Bielefeld, Fondazione Fotografia/Modena and RCA/London.
Since 2004, these Academies have been working together, discussing art education in the field of Photography. Annual meetings resulted in a professional exchange of professors about their variety of teaching strategies and programmes, and a prize for the best student’s work. As of 2018, the prize has been transformed into an exhibition of selected student’s works, rotating between the respective cities and institutes.
6 Academies at UNSEEN provides a live view of an interactive, visual transformation throughout the whole duration of the festival. More information on unseenamsterdam.com
