In October and November, GMM students undertook the Critical Media Practice module.
This module will introduce you to the creative practices, technical skills and conceptual frameworks required to produce critical media projects in a range of media (for example, video, photography, web) in a digital environment. It will explore the ways in which contemporary media production, participation and consumption are shaped by their historical, technological and everyday contexts. Through practice workshops, exploring key examples from alternative and experimental media, you will be encouraged to produce work that is analytical and critical of established media conventions.
