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.
- 2016 Bilder im Kontext - Bildanalysemethoden für die politische Bildungsarbeit / Images in context - Imageanalysis in political educational work, Heinrich Böll-Stiftung Berlin
- 2016 Nonviolent communication, Berlin
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 = Mixer"
Berlin, April-June 2016
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.
