It starts with a round of speed dating in cooperation with COPE: The COPE speed dating is not a classical speed dating. With food and drink, the participants are asked exciting questions on the topics of identity, homeland, culture and religion. Two people sit opposite each other – after 7 minutes the places and thus also the conversation partners are changed. The goal is to discover and redefine individual similarities and differences. Afterwards, Niko Havranek will talk about his work and his approach to street photography and show a selection of his photographs. Afterwards we will explore the streets of the neighborhood together and take photographs. Niko will be available to answer questions about design and technique. Please bring a device for taking pictures, from cell phones to pinhole cameras, everything is allowed and desired! There will also be some Polaroid cameras for the participants to try out.
