Weekend workshop at DMJX

While almost everybody in Denmark enjoyed the weekend and the summer sun, more than 20 students from Hannover, Paris and Aarhus gathered at DMJX in Aarhus this weekend for the final meeting at the mutual ”Youth in Europe” workshop.

”Youth in Europe” is a joint workshop arranged by teachers from the photography schools, Hochschule Hannover, Speos School of Photography in Paris and DMJX in Aarhus.

The students met for the first time in Paris in April, where they developed ideas for stories within the topic ”Youth in Europe”. This weekend, they met again with their pictures and worked on editing the stories together with the teachers and Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol.

The plan is that all the stories will be exhibited together in the fall.

Sarah Nørgaard, Bejnamin Nørskov, Stine Tidsvilde, Victoria Mørck Madsen, Peter-Emil Witt and Ivan Riordan Boll, all 7th term students, participated in this workshop.

It’s the second time the three schools run this mutual workshop. The pictures from the first workshop will be exhibited at the Photo Triennale in Hamburg this June.

The sun was shining outside but the students kept working inside both Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Photo: Tobias Nicolai.
