Joakim Eskildsen
weekend seminar
Personal photo-project workshop guided by Joakim Eskildsen
In our weekend seminar, Danish photographer and bookmaker Joakim Eskildsen helps you to find your own way of expressing yourself – whether in a book, on the wall or anywhere else. The seminar follows the wishes and needs of the students. It will be a combination of individual and group discussions as well as various lectures on Joakim Eskildsen’s own work.
For the first meeting you should prepare paper prints (small prints suffice) and a short presentation on your work. Please also try to describe your hopes and expectations in our one-year workshop.
The seminar will be held bilingually in German and English.
sun, 10am-6pm
