Currently, there is a wide discussion about Berlin as a good example of a "green city" even though much of its open green areas have been vanishing in the last few years.This photography workshop will discover some of Berlin's green urban spaces in relation to place, body and space. We will visit some iconic places of urban green of Berlin, as well as some more unknown places that are on the verge to vanish or that have been erected just recently. The Pfaueninsel (Peacock Island) was built in Prussian times with the ideal of landscape, which is a concept related to English 19 century painting. With this ideal of garden architecture in mind we will look at very new public gardens.

We will also some explore some vanishing places, the importance of "wasteland" in the city and some new examples of community gardening or guerilla gardening in the city.

In practical terms, we will research spatial compositions, body relations, local lights and shadows, and the impact of distance and proximity taken with different lenses. Concepts of "figure and space", "axes of view" and "containment of space" will be examined in visual terms. Discussions of the work in class and of contemporary photographers will broaden our senses. Requirements are: your own (digital) camera, good experience in photography, and the passion to experiment. A Berlin travel card for public transport is highly recommended.
