Communication, inspiration, exploration: a workshop in collaboration with the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts.
In November 2012, 33 students, accompanied by lecturers Dirk Reynders and Elke Lutgerink, came to Studio Baldauf to create a magazine in six hours. The workshop began with a lecture by Joachim Baldauf, after which the students took photographs in the area outside the studio. Their mission was to capture impressions of Berlin within a timeframe of one hour.
After they returned with their images, the group discussed the results together and voted to select one photograph per student.
Each student was assigned one page in the magazine for their chosen photograph, which would also include a title for the image, a headline and a caption.
Two students, Glenn Mosterd and Frauke Bakx, created the design for the magazine with input from the others. The texts were copyedited by Tarek Ibrahim and finally the finished files were submitted for printing.
Joachim Baldauf’s idea for the project was not to demonstrate the increasing speed at which the world of media works – it was to demonstrate the power of group dynamics and the advantages of making quick decisions when approaching a difficult task.
