Searching for Traces of Forced Labour: a Digital Photography Project
Beschreibung: The Nazi Forced Labour Documentation Centre is located in Berlin on the grounds of an almost completely intact former forced labour camp. It focuses on a forgotten victim group: civilian forced labourers from all over Europe forced to work for the Nazi regime during the Second World War. At the core of the project is a photographic exploration of the past and present aspects of forced labour.
Art der Arbeit: The main idea of the study camp is to prepare a digital photo exhibition on the topic of forced labour. During the digital camp you will learn more about Nazi forced labour and explore other examples from the Second World War period. We also want to discuss modern forms of forced and unfree labour. You will be invited to search for traces of forced labour in your home country and to document the results with the camera. As a result of the project, the visual stories will become part of an online exhibition. No prior knowledge in photography is necessary. The project will be accompanied by a professional photographer who give an introduction into photography and help create your story.
