Workshop Different Realities

Different Realities © Sabrina Asche and Eka Noviana

15. and 17.09.2022

Goethe-Institut Bandung

The Workshop focuses on the individual image realities of self-portrayal in social media.

What does portraying oneself say about the present and future? In the Bandung Photography Triennale series with the theme FUTURE IS NOW: SKEPTICISM, NEW REALITY AND INFINITIES, we are initiating a “reel” workshop together with Sabrina Asche and Eka Noviana concerned with Different Realities. We will question the individual pictorial realities of the participants through photography and videography in the workshop. In doing so, the focus is on self-presentation in social media. The technical basis is one’s own cell phone camera. The initiators Sabrina and Eka will accompany the discussions in this 2-day presence workshop. The aim is to enter intensively into the process of understanding and reflecting on the notions of identity and its representation. The workshop is open to the public and requires no previous photographic expertise.

15 September: 4-hour workshop centered on sharing and discussing the topic of identity and different realities as well as how to use cell phone cameras when recording for social media.

17 September: 6-hour workshop with participant presentations, sharing, evaluation and refection.
