It is a publication of a photographic exhibition showing the result of a five-month photographic workshop with refugees who recently arrived in the city of Weimar in Germany and who at the time of the workshop lived in the refugee camp in the northern part of the city.  

The workshops were conducted under the name of Photoworkshop Bauhaus 2016 by Majd Murad (Syria), Razan Naser Eddin (Kuwait) and Yomayra Puentes-Rivera (Colombia). The refugees learned the basic knowledge of DSLR cameras and parallel to the basic technical aspects the participants analysed and worked around the concept of home.
The exhibition shows the results of this reflection.

The entire project was supervised a by Prof. Dr. Frank Eckardt (Chair of Urban Studies and Social Research - Faculty of Architecture  and Urbanism at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar)

The project received the collaboration and support of:
