“Encounters in the Museum”

This workshop was aimed at arabic-speaking refugees and a german-speaking audience, who like to photograph, like to be photographed and open for encounters with people of different origins. After a tour in the Museum of Islamic Art and the German Historical Museum, the participants selected museum objects which they addressed personally and in which they discovered parts of a common, transcending history. The exchange over the objects formed the basis for photographic self-portraits, respectively group / portrait photos, which were supplemented with short personal texts and will find entry into a small exhibition at the end of the year 2017.
