Based on the works of the artist Peter Laszlo Péri, the children examine these questions using photographic means. The artist showed great interest in people, their way of life and their relationships, especially since the 1930s. His art should express a social and emotional level through appropriate poses of the figures.
Accompanied by the photographer Michelle Martins Carvalho and the art educator Barbara Antal, children work face to face with their companions in this workshop to create personal portraits and also learn simple photography techniques. In the end, portrait photos of unique ways of observing are created.
The portraits made in the course would be exhibited by Peter Laszlo Péri in the education room of the Kunsthaus Dahlem until the end of the exhibition. However, consent to this is not a condition for participation!
The workshop will be held in German and Hungarian.
Please feel free to bring your own camera.
An event in cooperation with the Collegium Hungaricum Berlin.
