In its everyday use the word “Beziehung” (relation) denotes and describes a multiple set of relationships between different objects and/or individuals. These can be social relationships such as romantic partnerships, friendships or business relations, but also relationships towards places, spaces, animals, the body, to things or between things. Goal of the workshop is the development of a long-term individual project. The development and refinement of the photographic position will be based on self-defined ideas and through a diverse exchange with the course instructor.
