What’s hiding in the basement?

Deep down in the basement in the north end of the school there’s a secret photo exhibition hanging. And it’s been there for almost ten years now.

Next to Mette is the co-ordinating editor in chief Per Westergård, Jydsk Fynske Medier. Picture by Søren Pagter.


Back in 2007, photojournalist Mette Mørk and her journalist colleague Rasmus Rørbæk went to West Ukraine to do their final BA-project - a story about the pollution and health problems in a small mining town near Lviv.


The two students made an innovative BA-project. Rasmus made a radio documentary and Mette made an exhibition - then they combined the two media so the viewer should walk around the exhibition while listening to the stories.


Mette and Rasmus presented it all in the basement of the school, a place which fits very well to the story.


This Friday Mette was back at DMJX because she had learned that the exhibition was still hanging here. It was full of dust, yes - but still worth seeing.


Mette had brought the co-ordinating editor in chief and the three picture editors from Jysk Fynske Medier to see the exhibition. She had even found the radio documentary, which she played for them.


The purpose was to inspire the editors to tell stories in a different way and to show what can be achieved when you work with mixed media.

Welcome to all students with Johan Bävman
