Body and Space

Workshop & Exhibition

1. Semester
Bachelor's course Manual & Material Culture

Main focus of the three-day photography workshops during the 1st semester was to be aware of the visual perception of space and environment, emphasising the body in urban areas.

The results of the workshop are exhibited in the NDU showroom (T 1.03).

Center of attraction was to see and understand a motif photographically - focus on lines, shape, light, shadow, color and movement in combination with the human body. How is an empty or occupied space perceived? And how does the perception change when the space is modified architecturally?

These and similar questions were explored during photographic exercises. Besides the use of various in- and outdoor surfaces, a variety of topics were discussed, for example observing and being observed. Aesthetic ideas and efficient editing was also part of the workshop, as well as a comparative overwiev of historical and contemporary photographers / filmmakers of the documentary and conceptual field.
