Workshop Conceptualisation and Facilitation

 

I attended the advanced training ARTPAED 2015-2016 for practices of cultural and artistic mediation in participatory projects to deepen profound pedagogical methods and insights in my practise and participated in the CrossCulture Programm by ifa with a stay in Beirut, Lebanon in 2017.

Additional trainings:


My workshops are not primarily focused on technical aspects but see the camera as a medium of research and interaction with the social environment regarding questions of identity and approaches to key aspects like empathy and trust when it comes to portrait photography and the documentation of daily life. Last but not least the work with the camera allows a artistic freedom of self-expression and positioning towards the world around. Not always we can define answers but we can raise awareness for questions and the willingness to face the complexity of societies.

C/O Berlin perspectives "Khalat goes Wild.Kräuter"

Berlin, May 2018

After the very first edition in 2015 "Mein Kiez" we leaned back into the urban searching for the green, the nearby wild and collaborations to open exchange in the neighbourhood - tracking edible herbs with Simone Böcker, turning it into a cooking-event with a lovely team of Diderot, followed by cyanotypie-explorations to draw a circle to the early photography/cyanotype by the botanist Anna Atkins. Small booklets were additionally created with collected plants and drawings. Mapleleaves stuck on noses and leaves for tea brought back home.

C/O Berlin perspectives "Khalat Masquerade"

Berlin, Atumn 2017

Through the playful approach to build masks and let them dance or dissappear in the urban environment then photographed or filmed in a dance performance we used the making as an occasion to speak about personal fears and roles in society where visible masks from different cultural and backgrounds and practices transit in invisible masking in every day life and talked about liberating spaces and wishes and that way also self-empowerment.

Experimental lab with explorations in the neighbourhood.

The goal of the project was to build and foster dialogue between young refugees and locals in the Berlin neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg. Participants explored their neighborhood surroundings with cameras and microphones and discovered new places and rooms that would normally be off limits. They asked questions and told their stories. The aim was to bring neighbors from different cultural backgrounds closer together through dialogue between refugees and locals and neighborhood institutions.
