From October (exact date will be fixed this week) our Spurwechsel exhibition will be in Neurologische Rehabilitationszentrum Godeshöhe (www.godeshoehe.de) in Bad Godesberg, Bonn. Including all candidates portrayed within the last four years!
„Spurwechsel“ - "Change of track".
We started with a two-day-photo-interview-programme. We met very different people with most diverse ways of life but one unalterable common ground: the
We experienced very intensive 48 hours. All inclusive: funny moments, sad stories, moving curriculum vitae. Anke asked, listened, followed up, wrote down. Markus circled the people with his camera, was lying on the floor, changed the perspective and spontaneously found ideas for photos which did justice to the expression "Spurwechsel", i.e. ”Change of Track”. After these two days with our new friends the fine adjustments were made: selecting photos and editing them. Compiling meaningful life collages for each individual person. To read conversations laterally and think them over. To write crisp summaries for each individual. To develop flyers as well. To find a suitable compositions. To design the corresponding text. To create a homepage and put it online. To organise everything. To check results and check again and again. To get all participants together. And a lot more.
That’s how we tackled the honorary MS-Photo-Text-Project. The first results consisting of five large photo collages with corresponding text panels which introduce our first five MS affected people were presented at the opening of the World-MS-Day in NRW on Saturday, 21. May 2016, in fact in a very artistic surrounding, that is to say in the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum (VHS-Forum) in Cologne.
After that we met more people who we photographed, interviewed, got to know . More information on the homepage of the DMSG Cologne (www.dmsg-koeln.de).
We are very proud of our ”Change of Track” and look forward to more! Whoever is interested to join us, please get in touch by telephone or email using the contact data in the website credits at the DMSG in Cologne.
For the organizers: Our exhibition can also be requested at the DMSG and loaned out.
